The relatively new but successful Teaneck eatery, Gotham Burger, is opening a 2nd location in Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighborhood, only blocks from the new Amsterdam Burger Co. (owned by the same owners as Mike’s Bistro).

According to Great Kosher Restaurants:

They are turning the place into a sports bar/burger place with a VIP lounge. The owners promise that they will be offering the same great food that they are known for with a NYC edge (think beer in hand watching a large screen TV).  Pre-paid Friday night Shabbos meals will be available once they are up and running.

Gotham Burger replaced Burgers Bar last year in Teaneck, NJ. Burgers Bar, the Israeli burger chain which had locations in Brooklyn, Cedarhurst, and Teaneck, have all closed.

The new burger joint will be opening in the former “Meat Me” located at 726 Amsterdam Ave, between W 95th & 96th streets.

  • Sounds great! I still haven’t made it to the Teaneck location, but looking forward to trying one of the spots.

  • mm, i’ll have to try it!

  • Sarah Klinkowitz

    I tell my hubby we have to try places in the city. This would be a good choice I think!

  • This is so exciting! Looks like it will be a great date place

  • It is amazing how many kosher restaurants have opened on the UWS since I lived there. I wish I was still there to try this new restaurant!

    I saw your Instagram pics from this place over the weekend and yum!! (It also helps that my hubby and I watched a Batman marathon this weekend).

    • This place isn’t open yet, so my Instagram pics must’ve been from somewhere else.

      • Whit @ jewhungry.wordpress.com

        Hmmm, my mistake. Saw burgers. Thought it was. Regardless, meat. yum.

  • Alison Barnett

    Awesome! Something the city does not have yet that’s kosher!

  • I think it stinks that this restaurant is opening 3 blocks from Amsterdam Burger Co. We finally have an excellent (and organic) kosher burger place on the uws and now there are going to be 2 places competing for business.
    In the end we could very well end up with no kosher burgers places on the uws.
