MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Posterity will remember J. G. Melon as a classic and coveted New York institution. Make your way into this cave set upon a cozy Upper East corner, where the timeless vibe 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 hordes. The focus at this multi-generational saloon is the burger—perhaps paired with a lip-smacking Bloody Mary at lunch? The warm toasted bun topped with meat cooked on a griddle to rosy pink is coupled with onions, pickles and crispy crinkle-cut fries. Be forewarned: you will go through the entire stack of napkins before finishing. Other simple pleasures include standards like salads, steaks and eggs. Seal the meal with a chocolate chip-studded layer cake.
