Rozmáhajúca sa sieť hamburgerov sa v Connecticute rozširuje

Arthur Bovino

Pre skupinu Union Square Hospitality Dannyho Meyera to boli veľké dva týždne - prvý Pete Wells 21. februára udelil reťazcu reštaurácií hviezdu v The New York Times (aj keď samotná kontrola nebola veľmi doplnková) a dnes ráno oznámili, že najnovší prírastok do stále sa rozrastajúcej rodiny Shake Shack sa otvorí v New Haven, Connecticut. Nové miesto sa otvorí na jeseň 2012 (pohodlne sa zhoduje so začiatkom nového školského roka na Yale). Toto bude druhý Shake Shack v Connecticute; originál je vo Westporte.

Rovnako ako ostatné Shake Shacks, aj tento bude podávať rôzne hamburgery, párky v rožku, mrazený puding, betóny a hranolky. Miesto bude mať tiež špeciálne položky ponuky, ktoré nie sú k dispozícii v iných pobočkách.

New Haven je samozrejme domovom reštaurácie, ktorá tvrdí, že je rodiskom amerického hamburgera, Louisovho obeda. Kultový ponor, ktorý bol založený v roku 1895, naďalej ponúka hamburgery pečené v ohni, ktoré sa varia v pôvodných vertikálnych liatinových griloch v reštaurácii.

Vo vyhlásení, ktoré vydal USHG dnes ráno, Meyer povedal: „Moji kolegovia a ja sme hrdí na to, že sme Shake Shack priviedli do New Havenu, sme neskutočne nadšení, že vytvoríme korene v tomto uponáhľanom, rušnom meste-ktoré niektorí dokonca hovoria, že je rodiskom. New Haven predstavuje vzrušujúcu mestskú renesanciu a sme nadšení z príležitosti pripojiť sa k tejto komunite ako zamestnávatelia a občania. “


5 najlepších hamburgerov v Amerike

Existujú nejaké jedlá, ktoré sú typickejšie americké ako hamburger? Jednoduchý spôsob varenia karbonátky z mletého hovädzieho mäsa a položenia na žemľu je pravdepodobne ešte americkejší ako jablkový koláč, a keď sa urobí správne, existuje niekoľko lahodnejších jedál. Aby sme nielen uctili tento magický sendvič, ale aj reštaurácie, ktoré podávajú jeho najlepšie príklady, rozhodli sme sa tento rok rozšíriť náš rebríček najlepších amerických hamburgerov z minuloročného zoznamu 40 na komplexných 101.

Najprv však trocha histórie. Burger má svoje korene až do mongolskej ríše, kde ich tradícia mletia konského mäsa prešla na Rusov, ktorí ho na začiatku 19. storočia priviedli do hlavného prístavu v Nemecku v Nemecku. Najčastejším cieľom lodí odchádzajúcich z Hamburgu bol New York a koncom 19. storočia začali reštaurácie v New Yorku nemeckým prisťahovalcom podávať to, čo nazývali hamburgské steaky, korenené a varené karbonátky z mletého hovädzieho mäsa. Tvrdí to Josh Ozersky Hamburger: história„Najstaršia zmienka o hamburskom steaku v ponuke bola v newyorskom podniku Delmonico's, recept vyvinutý jedným z najväčších kuchárov histórie Charlesom Ranhoferom.

Presný pôvod súčasného hamburgeru bohužiaľ zostáva záhadou, ale existuje niekoľko uchádzačov. Asi najznámejším je Louis Lassen, ktorý vo svojej reštaurácii Louis Lunch v New Haven, Conn., Predstavil hamburgerový steakový sendvič v roku 1900. Iní tvrdia, že jedlo „Hamburger Charlie“ Nagreen skutočne vynašiel na Wisconsinskom veľtrhu Outagamie County v roku 1885, a ešte iní tvrdia, že bratia Menchesovci to urobili na veľtrhu v roku 1885 v Hamburgu, NY Bez ohľadu na to, kto prvý použil na chlieb mleté ​​mäso, dnes je hamburger jedným z najobľúbenejších a najchutnejších jedál, aké existuje. Môžete skutočne tvrdiť, že kult hamburgera nebol nikdy silnejší. Nové a dlho milované regionálne reťazce hamburgerov, ktoré ste kedysi museli cestovať do konkrétnych štátov, aby ste si ich užili, sa vymanili z ich regiónov. Vďaka udalostiam ako Burger Bash na South Beach a New York Food & Wine Festivals sa súťažilo o titul najlepšieho hamburgera každoročná záležitosť, Hamburger America Georga Motza urobila veľa pre popularizáciu a väčšiu známosť menej známych pokladov v celej krajine a každý nerd v reštaurácii vie, že špičkoví kuchári už dlho cítia potrebu vtlačiť tejto americkej ikone vlastnú pečať (Jose Andres je najnovší, kto s ním urobil ďalší významný obrat).

Tento nárast kvality a povedomia dokonca postavil dlhoročných hamburgerových barónov ako Burger King a McDonald's späť na päty. Burger King experimentuje s neúspešným rebrandingom (odstránili kráľa, premenovali jeho hranolky na „Satisfries“ a zmenili ich motto na „Be Your Way“). McDonald's dal Ronaldovi nový vzhľad a obrátil sa na avokádo, aby ich zachránil, a vyskúšal nový guacamole hamburger. Obom však uniká pointa, ktorú reťazce ako Five Guys, Shake Shack a Umami Burger využili: Američania chcú kvalitu. Poznajú skvelý hamburger a na tomto úvodnom zozname 101 najlepších hamburgerov v Amerike uvidia jedny z najlepších v krajine.

Čo však presne definuje perfektný hamburger? Na zodpovedanie tejto otázky sme neprihlásili nikoho iného ako Pata LaFriedu, mäsiara a tvorcu niektorých z mäsových zmesí, z ktorých sa dnes vyrábajú najpredávanejšie hamburgery, vrátane Shake Shack's a legendárneho hamburgera Black Label. Newyorská Minetta Tavern.

„Perfektný hamburger je podľa mňa taký, ktorý zasýti to, po čom som v tej chvíli hladný,“ povedal nám.

A našťastie je v okolí veľa rôznych odrôd hamburgerov: Existujú palcové alebo tak hrubé karbonátky, ktoré vám odkvapkávajú šťavu na paži a dodávajú vám „vzácne bzučanie hovädzieho mäsa“ podľa LaFrieda s „krásnym oškvarkom zvonku“. , a jasne červené, ale teplé centrum, “ako je ten, ktorý sa nachádza v newyorskom Spotted Pig.

Ďalej sú „smečové hamburgery“, niekedy nazývané hamburgery v štýle rýchleho občerstvenia, tenké karbonátky varené na panvici, ktoré získajú dostatočnú kôrku a ktoré „potešia žalúdok, sú rýchle a efektívne“, hovorí Pat, ako ten, ktorý vytvoril pre Shake Chatrč. Nakoniec je tu to, čo LaFrieda nazýva „starý steak v hamburgerovom zážitku“, majstrovské diela, ktoré pozdvihujú pokorný hamburger na vynikajúce jedlo, pričom najznámejším je pravdepodobne spomínaný Black Label, ktorý sa predáva za 28 dolárov.

Aby sme zostavili naše poradie, zostavili sme zoznam takmer 200 hamburgerov z celej krajiny, od Spruce Pine, Severná Karolína až po Hillsboro, Ore. Na základe minuloročných návrhov úradov vrátane Johna T. Edgeho a Josha Ozerského sme vyčesali existujúce najlepšie zoznamy tlačené aj online, prekopané online recenziami a nenechali na kameni kameň (drdol?) Napriek tomu, že každý z hamburgerov, ktoré sme našli, bol jedinečný, určité vlastnosti boli univerzálne: vysokokvalitné hovädzie mäso, správne dochucovadlo, dobre vyvážené komponenty a celková pozornosť k detailom, ktorú by mnohí nazvali „robenie s láskou“. Aby boli herné podmienky vyrovnané, nezahrnuli sme reťazce, ktoré sa rozšírili mimo ich domovských miest a majú veľa miest, čo znamená, že reťazce ako Shake Shack a In-n-Out zostanú na ďalší deň hodnotenia.

Potom sme tieto hamburgery rozdelili podľa regiónov a zostavili prieskum, ktorý potom urobila skupina 50 známych spisovateľov, novinárov, bloggerov a kuchárskych autorít z celej krajiny a požiadala ich, aby hlasovali za svojich obľúbených, obmedzene na tie, ktoré pokúsili sa. Spísali sme výsledky a 101 hamburgerov, ktoré získali najviac hlasov, nájdete dnes.

Konečný zoznam zahŕňa celú krajinu, od mora po žiarivé more: New York je na prvom mieste s 15 vstupmi, z toho je sedem z oblasti Los Angeles, päť v Atlante a Philadelphii, štyri v Bostone, Nashville a San Franciscu a tri v Chicagu, Miami, oblasť DC a Memphis. Ale skvelé hamburgery sa neobmedzujú iba na veľké mestá, medzi ktoré patria Royal Oak, Michigan, Ocoee, Florida, West Lafayette, Indiana a Portsmouth, New Hampshire. V Nashville je hamburger s arašidovým maslom, jeden rozbitý s cibuľou na rošt v El Reno, Oklahoma, 13-uncový monštrum na Floride a dve karbonátky plnené syrom v Minneapolise. Vieme, že existuje určite veľa ďalších skvelých hamburgerov, ale ak nám váš obľúbený chýbal, dajte nám vedieť v komentároch nižšie.

Takže čítajte ďalej a urobte si prehliadku USA optikou jej najlepších hamburgerov. Necháme posledné slovo veľkého Pata LaFriedu:

„Američania milujú hamburgery, pretože ich vnímame ako niečo, čo je našou krajinou priekopníkom. Sú lacné, zaplnia naše brucho, a čo je najdôležitejšie, prinášajú odkaz späť na spomienku na pohodlie a bezpečnosť v určitom okamihu nášho života. To je všetko. rovná sa zábava v jedení, takže už nie je pohodlným jedlom, ale skôr americkou zábavou. “

„Perfektný hamburger je podľa mňa taký, ktorý uspokojí to, po čom som v tej chvíli hladný,“ povedal nám.

A našťastie je v okolí veľa rôznych odrôd hamburgerov: Existujú palcové alebo tak hrubé karbonátky, ktoré vám odkvapkávajú šťavu na paži a dodávajú vám „vzácne hovädzie bzučanie“, tvrdí LaFrieda, s „krásnym oškvarkom zvonku“. , a jasne červené, ale teplé centrum, “ako je ten, ktorý sa nachádza v newyorskom Spotted Pig.

Ďalej sú „smečové hamburgery“, niekedy nazývané hamburgery v štýle rýchleho občerstvenia, tenké karbonátky varené na panvici, ktoré získajú dostatočnú kôrku a ktoré „potešia žalúdok, sú rýchle a efektívne“, podľa Patu podobne ako ten, ktorý vytvoril pre Shake Chatrč. Nakoniec je tu to, čo LaFrieda nazýva „starý steak v hamburgerovom zážitku“, majstrovské diela, ktoré pozdvihujú pokorný hamburger na vynikajúce jedlo, pričom najznámejším je pravdepodobne spomínaný Black Label, ktorý sa predáva za 28 dolárov.

Aby sme zostavili naše poradie, zostavili sme zoznam takmer 200 hamburgerov z celej krajiny, od Spruce Pine, Severná Karolína až po Hillsboro, Ore. Na základe návrhov úradov vrátane Johna T. Edge a Josha Ozerskyho z minulého roka sme vyčesali existujúce najlepšie zoznamy tlačené aj online, prekopané online recenziami a nenechali na kameni kameň (drdol?) Napriek tomu, že každý z hamburgerov, ktoré sme našli, bol jedinečný, určité vlastnosti boli univerzálne: vysokokvalitné hovädzie mäso, správne dochucovadlo, dobre vyvážené komponenty a celková pozornosť k detailom, ktorú by mnohí nazvali „robenie s láskou“. Aby boli herné podmienky vyrovnané, nezahrnuli sme reťazce, ktoré sa rozšírili mimo ich domovských miest a majú veľa miest, čo znamená, že reťazce ako Shake Shack a In-n-Out zostanú na ďalší deň hodnotenia.

Potom sme tieto hamburgery rozdelili podľa regiónov a zostavili prieskum, ktorý potom urobila skupina 50 známych spisovateľov, novinárov, bloggerov a kulinárskych autorít z celej krajiny a požiadala ich, aby hlasovali za svojich obľúbených, obmedzene na tie, ktoré pokúsili sa. Spísali sme výsledky a 101 hamburgerov, ktoré získali najviac hlasov, nájdete tu.

Konečný zoznam zahŕňa celú krajinu, od mora po žiarivé more: New York je na prvom mieste s 15 vstupmi, z toho je sedem z oblasti Los Angeles, päť v Atlante a Philadelphii, štyri v Bostone, Nashville a San Franciscu a tri v Chicagu, Miami, oblasť DC a Memphis. Ale skvelé hamburgery nie sú obmedzené iba na veľké mestá, medzi ktoré patria Royal Oak, Michigan, Ocoee, Florida, West Lafayette, Indiana a Portsmouth, New Hampshire. V Nashville je hamburger s arašidovým maslom, ktorý je rozbitý cibuľou na rošt v El Reno, Oklahoma, 13 uncí behemoth na Floride a dve karbonátky plnené syrom v Minneapolise. Vieme, že existuje určite veľa ďalších skvelých hamburgerov, ale ak nám váš obľúbený chýbal, dajte nám vedieť v komentároch nižšie.

Takže pokračujte v ceste po USA pohľadom jej najlepších hamburgerov. Necháme posledné slovo veľkého Pata LaFriedu:

„Američania milujú hamburgery, pretože ich vnímame ako niečo, čo je našou krajinou priekopníkom. Sú lacné, zaplnia naše brucho, a čo je najdôležitejšie, prinášajú odkaz späť na spomienku na pohodlie a bezpečnosť v určitom okamihu nášho života. To je všetko. rovná sa zábava v jedení, takže už nie je pohodlným jedlom, ale skôr americkou zábavou. “


5 najlepších hamburgerov v Amerike

Existujú nejaké jedlá, ktoré sú typickejšie americké ako hamburger? Jednoduchý spôsob varenia karbonátky z mletého hovädzieho mäsa a položenia na žemľu je pravdepodobne ešte americkejší ako jablkový koláč, a keď sa urobí správne, existuje niekoľko lahodnejších jedál. Aby sme nielen uctili tento magický sendvič, ale aj reštaurácie, ktoré podávajú jeho najlepšie príklady, rozhodli sme sa tento rok rozšíriť náš rebríček najlepších amerických hamburgerov z minuloročného zoznamu 40 na komplexných 101.

Najprv však trocha histórie. Burger má svoje korene až do mongolskej ríše, kde ich tradícia mletia konského mäsa prešla na Rusov, ktorí ho na začiatku 19. storočia priviedli do hlavného prístavu v Nemecku v Nemecku. Najčastejším cieľom lodí odchádzajúcich z Hamburgu bol New York a koncom 19. storočia začali reštaurácie v New Yorku nemeckým prisťahovalcom podávať to, čo nazývali hamburgské steaky, korenené a varené karbonátky z mletého hovädzieho mäsa. Tvrdí to Josh Ozersky Hamburger: história„Najstaršia zmienka o hamburskom steaku v ponuke bola v newyorskom podniku Delmonico's, recept vyvinutý jedným z najväčších kuchárov histórie Charlesom Ranhoferom.

Presný pôvod súčasného hamburgeru bohužiaľ zostáva záhadou, ale existuje niekoľko uchádzačov. Perhaps the most well-known is Louis Lassen, who introduced a hamburger steak sandwich at his New Haven, Conn., restaurant Louis Lunch in 1900. Others claim that "Hamburger Charlie" Nagreen actually invented the dish at Wisconsin's Outagamie County Fair in 1885, and still others claim that the Menches brothers did it at an 1885 fair in Hamburg, N.Y. Regardless of whoever first applied ground meat to bread, today the burger is one of the most beloved, comforting foods in existence. You could actually argue that the cult of the burger has never been stronger. New and long-beloved regional burger chains you once had to travel to specific states to enjoy have broken out of their regions, events like Burger Bash at the South Beach and New York Food & Wine Festivals have made competing for the title of the best burger an annual affair, George Motz's Hamburger America has done much to popularize and make more known the lesser-known treasures across the country, and every restaurant nerd knows that high-end chefs have long felt the need to put their own stamp on this American icon (Jose Andres is the latest to take another high-profile turn with it).

This rise in quality and awareness even has put longtime burger barons like Burger King and McDonald's back on their heels. Burger King has been experimenting with unsuccessful rebrandings (they did away with the King, renamed their French fries "Satisfries," and changed their motto to "Be Your Way"). McDonald's has given Ronald a new look and turned to avocados to save them, testing out a new guacamole burger. However, they're both missing the point that chains like Five Guys, Shake Shack, and Umami Burger have taken advantage of: Americans want quality. They know a great burger, and they'll see some of the country's greatest on this inaugural list of the 101 Best Burgers in America.

But what exactly defines the perfect burger? To answer this question we enlisted none other than Pat LaFrieda, butcher extraordinaire and the creator of some of the meat blends that have gone into making some of the most heralded burgers served in America today, including Shake Shack's and the legendary Black Label burger served at New York's Minetta Tavern.

"The perfect burger, in my view, is one that satisfies what I am hungry for at that moment," he told us.

And thankfully, there are plenty of different varieties of burgers around: There are the inch or so-thick patties that drip juice down your arm and give you that "rare beef buzz," according to LaFrieda, with "a beautiful sear on the exterior, and a bright red, yet warm center," like the one found at New York's Spotted Pig.

Next up are the "smash burgers," sometimes called fast-food style burgers, thin patties cooked on a griddle that get an ample crust and are "stomach pleasers, fast and effective," according to Pat, like the one he created for Shake Shack. Finally, there's what LaFrieda calls the "aged steak in a burger experience," masterpieces that raise the humble burger to fine-dining status, the best-known most likely being the aforementioned Black Label, which sells for $28.

In order to compile our ranking, we assembled a list of nearly 200 burgers from all across the country, from Spruce Pine, North Carolina to Hillsboro, Ore. Building upon last year's suggestions from authorities including John T. Edge and Josh Ozersky, we combed existing best-of lists both print and online, dug through online reviews, and left no stone (bun?) unturned. Even though each of the burgers we found was unique, certain qualities were universal: high-quality beef, proper seasoning, well-proportioned components, and an overall attention to detail that many would call "making it with love." In order to keep the playing field even, we didn't include chains that have expanded outside of their home cities and have lots of locations, meaning that chains like Shake Shack and In-n-Out will be left for another day's ranking.

We then divided these burgers up by region, and compiled a survey which was then taken by a panel of 50 noted writers, journalists, bloggers, and culinary authorities from across the country, asking them to vote for their favorites, limited to the ones that they've tried. We tallied the results, and the 101 burgers that received the most votes are the ones you'll find here today.

The final list spans the country, from sea to shining sea: New York leads the way with 15 entries there are seven from the Los Angeles area five in Atlanta and Philadelphia four in Boston, Nashville, and San Francisco and three in Chicago, Miami, the D.C. area, and Memphis. But great burgers aren't limited to just the big cities other locations include Royal Oak, Michigan, Ocoee, Florida, West Lafayette, Indiana, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. There's a peanut butter-topped burger in Nashville one smashed with onions onto the griddle in El Reno, Oklahoma a 13-ounce behemoth in Florida and two cheese-stuffed patties in Minneapolis. We know that there are certainly plenty of other great burgers out there, however if we missed your favorite, let us know in the comments below.

So read on to take a tour of the U.S. through the lens of its best burgers. We'll let the great Pat LaFrieda get the last word:

"Americans love burgers because we see them as something that our country has pioneered. They are inexpensive, they fill our bellies, and most importantly, they carry a link back to a memory of comfort and safety at some point in our lives. That all equals fun in eating, making it no longer a comfort food, but instead an American pastime."


The 5 Best Burgers in America

Are there any foods that are more quintessentially American than the burger? The simple act of cooking a patty of ground beef and putting it on a bun is arguably even more American than apple pie, and when done properly there are few foods more delicious. In order to not only honor this magical sandwich but also the restaurants that serve the finest examples of it, this year we decided to expand our ranking of America's best burgers from last year's list of 40 to a comprehensive 101.

But first, a little history. The burger traces its roots all the way back to the Mongol Empire, where their tradition of mincing horsemeat was passed onto the Russians, who in turn brought it to the major port of Hamburg, Germany, in the early 19th century. The most common destination for ships departing from Hamburg was New York, and by the late 1800s, restaurants in New York began serving what they called Hamburg steaks, seasoned and cooked patties of ground beef, to German immigrants. According to Josh Ozersky's The Hamburger: A History, the oldest mention of a Hamburg steak on a menu was at New York's Delmonico's, a recipe developed by one of history's greatest chefs, Charles Ranhofer.

The exact origin of the modern-day hamburger unfortunately remains a mystery, but there are several contenders. Perhaps the most well-known is Louis Lassen, who introduced a hamburger steak sandwich at his New Haven, Conn., restaurant Louis Lunch in 1900.

Burger King has been experimenting with unsuccessful rebrandings (they did away with the King, renamed their French fries "Satisfries," and changed their motto to "Be Your Way"). McDonald's has given Ronald a new look and turned to avocados to save them, testing out a new guacamole burger. However, they're both missing the point that chains like Five Guys, Shake Shack, and Umami Burger have taken advantage of: Americans want quality. They know a great burger, and they'll see some of the country's greatest on this inaugural list of the 101 Best Burgers in America.

But what exactly defines the perfect burger? To answer this question we enlisted none other than Pat LaFrieda, butcher extraordinaire and the creator of some of the meat blends that have gone into making some of the most heralded burgers served in America today, including Shake Shack's and the legendary Black Label burger served at New York's Minetta Tavern.

"The perfect burger, in my view, is one that satisfies what I am hungry for at that moment," he told us.

And thankfully, there are plenty of different varieties of burgers around: There are the inch or so-thick patties that drip juice down your arm and give you that "rare beef buzz," according to LaFrieda, with "a beautiful sear on the exterior, and a bright red, yet warm center," like the one found at New York's Spotted Pig.

Next up are the "smash burgers," sometimes called fast-food style burgers, thin patties cooked on a griddle that get an ample crust and are "stomach pleasers, fast and effective," according to Pat, like the one he created for Shake Shack. Finally, there's what LaFrieda calls the "aged steak in a burger experience," masterpieces that raise the humble burger to fine-dining status, the best-known most likely being the aforementioned Black Label, which sells for $28.

In order to compile our ranking, we assembled a list of nearly 200 burgers from all across the country, from Spruce Pine, North Carolina to Hillsboro, Ore. Building upon last year's suggestions from authorities including John T. Edge and Josh Ozersky, we combed existing best-of lists both print and online, dug through online reviews, and left no stone (bun?) unturned. Even though each of the burgers we found was unique, certain qualities were universal: high-quality beef, proper seasoning, well-proportioned components, and an overall attention to detail that many would call "making it with love." In order to keep the playing field even, we didn't include chains that have expanded outside of their home cities and have lots of locations, meaning that chains like Shake Shack and In-n-Out will be left for another day's ranking.

We then divided these burgers up by region, and compiled a survey which was then taken by a panel of 50 noted writers, journalists, bloggers, and culinary authorities from across the country, asking them to vote for their favorites, limited to the ones that they've tried. We tallied the results, and the 101 burgers that received the most votes are the ones you'll find here today.

The final list spans the country, from sea to shining sea: New York leads the way with 15 entries there are seven from the Los Angeles area five in Atlanta and Philadelphia four in Boston, Nashville, and San Francisco and three in Chicago, Miami, the D.C. area, and Memphis. But great burgers aren't limited to just the big cities other locations include Royal Oak, Michigan, Ocoee, Florida, West Lafayette, Indiana, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. There's a peanut butter-topped burger in Nashville one smashed with onions onto the griddle in El Reno, Oklahoma a 13-ounce behemoth in Florida and two cheese-stuffed patties in Minneapolis. We know that there are certainly plenty of other great burgers out there, however if we missed your favorite, let us know in the comments below.

So read on to take a tour of the U.S. through the lens of its best burgers. We'll let the great Pat LaFrieda get the last word:

"Americans love burgers because we see them as something that our country has pioneered. They are inexpensive, they fill our bellies, and most importantly, they carry a link back to a memory of comfort and safety at some point in our lives. That all equals fun in eating, making it no longer a comfort food, but instead an American pastime."


The 5 Best Burgers in America

Are there any foods that are more quintessentially American than the burger? The simple act of cooking a patty of ground beef and putting it on a bun is arguably even more American than apple pie, and when done properly there are few foods more delicious. In order to not only honor this magical sandwich but also the restaurants that serve the finest examples of it, this year we decided to expand our ranking of America's best burgers from last year's list of 40 to a comprehensive 101.

But first, a little history. The burger traces its roots all the way back to the Mongol Empire, where their tradition of mincing horsemeat was passed onto the Russians, who in turn brought it to the major port of Hamburg, Germany, in the early 19th century. The most common destination for ships departing from Hamburg was New York, and by the late 1800s, restaurants in New York began serving what they called Hamburg steaks, seasoned and cooked patties of ground beef, to German immigrants. According to Josh Ozersky's The Hamburger: A History, the oldest mention of a Hamburg steak on a menu was at New York's Delmonico's, a recipe developed by one of history's greatest chefs, Charles Ranhofer.

The exact origin of the modern-day hamburger unfortunately remains a mystery, but there are several contenders. Perhaps the most well-known is Louis Lassen, who introduced a hamburger steak sandwich at his New Haven, Conn., restaurant Louis Lunch in 1900. Others claim that "Hamburger Charlie" Nagreen actually invented the dish at Wisconsin's Outagamie County Fair in 1885, and still others claim that the Menches brothers did it at an 1885 fair in Hamburg, N.Y. Regardless of whoever first applied ground meat to bread, today the burger is one of the most beloved, comforting foods in existence. You could actually argue that the cult of the burger has never been stronger. New and long-beloved regional burger chains you once had to travel to specific states to enjoy have broken out of their regions, events like Burger Bash at the South Beach and New York Food & Wine Festivals have made competing for the title of the best burger an annual affair, George Motz's Hamburger America has done much to popularize and make more known the lesser-known treasures across the country, and every restaurant nerd knows that high-end chefs have long felt the need to put their own stamp on this American icon (Jose Andres is the latest to take another high-profile turn with it).
