MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Posterity will remember J.G. Melon as a coveted NY institution. Make your way into this 1920's structure, marked by a neon sign and set upon a cozy corner, where the timeless vibe, telltale green-and-white checked tablecloth, and cheery staff make up most of its allure. Drinks are steadily churned out at a dark wood bar, so arrive early to avoid the crowds.

The focus at this multi-generational saloon is the burger—paired with a lip-smacking Bloody Mary at lunch. The warm toasted bun topped with rosy-pink meat is coupled with onions, pickles, and crinkle-cut fries. Be forewarned: you will go through an entire stack of napkins before finishing. Other simple pleasures include salads, steaks and eggs. Seal the deal with a chocolate chip-studded layer cake.
