is a modern kosher burger restaurant adjacent to NYU that is set to open in early June. The restaurant’s vibe is similar to that of newly established burger restaurant Boeuf & Bun
(Crown Heights) or the now closed Clubhouse Cafe
. The restaurant can seat up to 75 diners, as well as additional patrons (after opening their front garage door) on the sidewalk outside.
Mocha Burger’s burger options include: Classic, Smokey, Stacked (2 burgers), Funghi (w/mushrooms & fried onions), BLT (fried egg, smoked lamb bacon, and papitas), Stuffed (pastrami stuffed jumbo burger), Fish (beer battered tilapia burger), and Veggie. Additionally, they will offer Sliders with your choice of meats: beef, lamb, or veal.
MB’s menu is not limited to burgers and will include buffalo wings, short ribs, and steak; meatball entrées made from beef, lamb, or turkey+chicken; grilled chicken; grilled salmon; satay skewers; salads; multiple fries options; as well as a limited sushi menu. Additionally, the restaurant will have a bar serving cocktails, wine, and beer.
[We have seen the menu, which is extensive, and will share a final version closer to the opening date]
Due to its proximity to NYU, the restaurant will work to create lunch and student specials to support the local population.
Mocha Burger’s kosher certification is being provided by the OU, and the restaurant will be sourcing Chassidishe meat for its dishes.
No reservations required (or are accepted).
