PJ Clarkes is as storied an institution as you will find in New York. It often makes those ubiquitous Top Burger lists and deservedly so. It is a fantastic sandwich, perfectly designed and expertly constructed. Big enough too satisfy but small enough to handle easily. The fresh ground beef has a hearty flavor, it is juicy and succulent, the simple bun is light and airy yet perfectly soaks up the torrent of juice that gushes from the patty. The cheese is tangy and contrasts nicely with the sweet onion. The place gets busy, flush with suits but the service is zippy. This is one of my favorite burgers of all time.
