J. G. Melon, open since 1972, known for its famously juicy hamburgers, cottage fries, and bloody marys, developed a following from day one.

This Upper East Side “saloon with food” has been serving a local and international crowd from stars and politicians to artists and writers and generations of families and friends.

With our Melon decor, green and white table cloths, old-time jukebox, and outdoor cafe, we are committed to the J. G. Melon tradition... Providing our customers with the quintessential New York City burger experience.
