Great burgers here. 1/2 pounders can get a little unwieldy, so I'd recommend a 1/4 pounder. The fries are excellent as well.

Found this wondering around downtown. Its hidden away just from Fulton Street but is worth finding. A great inexpensive burger in New York. You basically choose your meat and amount, toppings and sides so you can have it however you want it. Worth a lunch visit if you're in the area.

This place caught my eye as I was passing and thought I would give it a try. The burger was ok but nothing to brag about and the French fries were crispy but had a dark golden brown color which usually is from the oil being used for a longer period of time. I don't think I will be going... More

The place is very small but cosy. The burgers are just great and the use of kobe meat is very nice and definitely worth a visits.

Went here for lunch & the Turkey Burger was the best I ever had. Sweet Potato fries were great and I appreciated how light they were. They were not overly fried & soggy with oil - they were cooked just right. Definitely a good find on Nassau Street !

We couldn't find the place we wanted to go and kept walking past this place. Glad we went in, very good food. We each got a Sirloin burger and 1 Basket of fries which is big enough for 2 people to share. The grilled onions were amazing! Loved it!

Food is great and the service, flowers, and music always delightful. Be ready for a rush at 1pm but all other times are sane. I try to come at least once per week and talk great books or mountaineering with the owners.

We were a group of 3, took 3 burgers and fries. They were all fresh and tasty for really good price. Recommended for anyone visiting the financial district in NY!

We arrived late to New York City, and were looking for something to eat, We had come upon Zaitzeff, this was a unique stop to get something to eat, the food was so good! we were extremely impressed. It is Organic food so it is a little pricey compared to other places alike. It is a small location with only... More

Not a bad burger, but pricy compared to other places. The avocado was not ripe - so tasteless and the buns are a bit boring. Recommend going to Bareburger (organic and more selections... same price) around the corner. Wouldn't go back.

Thank andal03

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
