The Meat Hook is a Williamsburg butcher shop that’s run by meat whisperers who are serious about grass-fed beef. So naturally, the highlight of the menu at their new takeout restaurant is a very impressive burger. The top-quality patty is plump, juicy, and can only be ordered medium-rare. And while it’s covered in a cascading waterfall of American cheese, special sauce, and raw onions, the rich and salty beef itself remains the focal point of this cheeseburger. If you prefer your burgers sweet and smoky, you can add a thick slab of their housemade bacon to your burger for $4 extra.
