Nice Matin

201 West 79th Street
New York, NY

Ranking: 49


Situated in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, Nice Matin is most known for its Five Napkin Burger (whose popularity grew so much, a restaurant of the same name opened in Hell's Kitchen one year ago this June).

The lunch menu features two burgers (both ground chuck) options, the above mentioned Five Napkin Burger ($14.75 for lunch, $16.50 for dinner), a 10 ounce burger served with sauteed onions, Comte cheese and aioli, or the regular burger, which your choice of cheese, bacon, marinated peppers, balsamic onions, avocado or mushrooms (each topping is an additional $1).  The brioche roll is appropriate for the 10 ouncer, though some argued the bun was too big and a bit out of proportion, which was ironic because some had difficulty in keeping the unit together (and not because of the juices).

The experience was made more enjoyable by having over 30 beers to select from.  In the end, I don't know if the entire table went through five napkins, but that won't stop us from trying the namesake at some point in the future.
