Trying Everything on the Menu at NYC’s Most Famous Burger Restaurant (Ft Brad Leone)

  • Published: 12 June 2019
  • For Alex Delany, eating at J.G. Melon is a religious experience. Going there once a week was his version of going to church. Well, now he's back and this time he's there to try one bite of everything on the menu at this most hallowed of grounds. Plus, he's joined by the singular Brad Leone, who is definitely not there just for the free meal.

      Nicoise: pronounced "knee-swah-zz". French words don't all just randomly have silent suffixes...

        in reality the pickle chip is inferior to french in terms of surface area.

            The best burger is on a griddle instead of an open fire? No, absolutely not.

                      Super fun to watch but $12 for that simple BLT? You could spend $9 on whole pack of the Peter Luger thick cut bacon and a loaf of (real) bread and make the best english bacon type sandwiches instead... but that's just me tho.

                            I'm triggered that they called it the Trifecta and not the Trinity. Literally they were calling it church

                                  My favorite part of the Brad/Delany Rivalry is that on his episode of the Live to Tape podcast with Johnny Pemberton, Brad mentions that his bloodline includes Delanys. There can be only one??

                                    this place looks incredibly overrated. Maybe it tastes great but the food looks like any standard diner food.

                                        What a waste of food, only taking one bite out of everything on the menue. I pray the crew ate the rest.

                                                Silly, stupid, and wasteful. Stopped watching after 5 minutes. There are starving people in the world and you’re complaining your Bloody Mary (bull) is too ‘umami forward’? Damn. Life musta sucked for you in that moment.

                                                                                          Just made a trip to ny for a medical thing but had a chance to stop by both JG Melon's AND Peter Luger to compare PLAIN burgers (well bacon on the side for later insertion). JG is hit above Luger's. The way the meats were aged or cuts used put JG's burger in that category of what you want out of a steak burger without all the chewing. Thanks for the suggestion. And this week, I just tried Wolfgang's in Waikiki's cheeseburger, it was an honest cheeseburger, without the steak taste.
