A seasoned half pound patty cooked to perfection is only one reason to visit this tiny pub, a hidden gem on the Upper East Side. Often overlooked because of its low-profile location, this simple meal is hands down the best burger in the city. A great beer selection and outdoor dining area makes Melon the perfect spot to people watch in the summer. In the winter, the pub is a cozy escape from the bustle of the City. Make sure you arrive early to beat the rush and bring cash–no plastic allowed
