There are some moments when you need a burger, whether it’s after an unusually prolific Happy Hour or when you just can’t bear the thought of eating the same salad for the 12th day in a row. That’s when this cheerful pub in West Harlem steps in, complete with a sidewalk patio on Broadway strung with lights. One whole side of the menu here is devoted to burgers - there are seven in total, plus a “build it your damn self” section. Two solid choices are the soft and saucy Daddy Mac and the Parmesan Crusted, served between two slices of toasted sourdough bread (yes, the top is coated with melted parmesan). The fried chicken sandwiches are also a terrific choice, including the impressively-sized (and hot sauce-centric) Hot Fried Thigh.
