Ritchey’s Restaurant Reviews



Battle of the burgers.


While Shake Shack is relatively new to the NY scene, PJ Clarke’s and JG Melon’s have been around for generations. Due to proximity, I frequent JG’s. After leaving America for more than a week, I find myself craving their infamous burger. The small historic restaurant is filled from opening at 11 AM to closing at 3 AM (and the kitchen is stern with their closing time). However, this past week I found myself at PJ Clarke’s by Lincoln Plaza. I felt as though I was somewhat betraying my local joint, but in my defense, every other restaurant was filled with ballet and opera attendees. As I enjoyed my meal, I found myself constantly comparing PJ’s to JG’s.
