Two expensive burgers to pick from, both worth the price tag. For $17 you can have the Minetta Burger, which comes with cheddar cheese and caramelized onions. Certainly nothing to scoff at, this burger is juicy, and the cheddar cheese packs tons of flavor. But why kick a field goal when you can go for two, right?

Order the Black Label Burger. $26 and worth every Lincoln-faced penny. Prime dry-aged beef cuts topped with caramelized onions. Served on a custom-created Balthazar Bakery brioche bun studded with sesame seeds. They say it doesn’t need cheese, but don't let them tell you what your burger needs. You know what you want.
