The New York Burger Map

Here we present the second in a series of five guides to New York City’s best eateries, created and published by All-You-Can-Eat-Press. Founded by Yuki Matsuo, with Jim Datz and Naomi Reis, the press celebrates everyday food for everyday people and is “united by a mutual love for vernacular eats and the unique flavour of local cultures”.

  • The maps involve extensive research, “there are hundreds and hundreds of burgers out there in NYC, and we ate A LOT of them. We wanted to include them all. We argued. We went back and forth”.
  •  
  • The resulting map, beautifully illustrated and easily digestible, is “a snapshot of New York’s burger landscape – the classic, the gourmet and the greasy”. Yuki says that they “hope it inspires people to explore New York City through the prism of its burgers – presented in a myriad of forms as diverse as the city itself”.
