One of the most important parts of Burger Week is determining once and for all, through a highly imperfect bracketing and voting system, which burger is the best burger of all New York. We've chosen 16 burger contenders in four categories from a list of Eater Burger Committee faves and reader submissions. The four categories are fast food style burgers, pub style burgers, popular restaurant burgers, and wild card burgers.
Yesterday, readers decided that Shake Shack serves the best fast food-style burger. Now it's time for the pub burger, a simple, larger sized burger, often served in dives, pubs, and places where there's not much else on the menu besides beer. Some laudable burgers that did not make the cut: Paul's, Veselka, Donovan's.
