1. JG Melon: Cheeseburger
When you’re jonesing for a cheeseburger, you want to look for buzzwords like simple, old-school and famous. Enter JG Melon, a charming West Village staple that understands patties and buns like it’s no one else’s business. Their secret? They keep things modest. Its signature burger is adorned with only the essentials: thinly sliced pickles, red onion, sliced tomato and lettuce. (2020 is all about scaling back, right?) This digestible and delicious classic is a genuine delight.
