New York City may be known for its pizza, cupcakes and macarons but we have definitely been lacking in the burger department. Luckily that is no longer true, beloved Florida-based chain BurgerFi has made a home in the upper east side.
Only a mere two years old, this prime option is part of the fastest growing, all-natural burger franchises in the county. BurgerFi is proud to be part of the “better burger” movement, using sustainable practices and quality ingredients to make its mark on the food and craft drink scene.
All meals are made to order with no additives or chemicals unlike the rest of the fast food beef you’re consuming. A freezer or microwave is never used to ensure freshness. The beef is humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone-free. In addition to burgers and a variety of vegetarian options, BurgerFi also offers Kobe beef hot dogs but most importantly — craft beer and wine. If that wasn’t cool enough, all BurgerFi’s are home to Coca Cola freestyle machines that allow you to create a limitless drink selection thanks to over 120 flavors. And yes, it’s the Coca Cola made with real sugar cane that is made and bottled in Mexico as opposed to the American version with high-fructose corn syrup.
Whether you want a hearty meal and a few drinks to start off the night or a fun dining option in the heart of the UES with friends, BurgerFi is a welcome stop in a rotation of NYC favorites.
