The Counter Restaurant Review:

Have it your way? But of course. Adopt some New York attitude and build the burger of your imagination at The Counter’s Manhattan outpost. In this minimalist cafeteria-like setting, the process is straightforward. Select a 100 percent natural Angus beef patty as a base or go for turkey, chicken breast, vegan veggie or organic bison. Pick an artisan bun (try the pretzel roll if it’s on the specials board) or a bowl of greens, and finish your concoction with any of 12 cheeses, 32 toppings (from roasted green chilies to grilled pineapple and spicy pepperoncinis), and 23 sauces. Not feeling NYC adventurous? Keep it basic with ketchup or mustard. Non-burger choices are available, too, with starters like fried dill pickle chips or the “fifty-fifty,” a twosome of traditional (or sweet potato) fries or onion strings. Wines by the glass and local beer complement well. If you’re craving something sweet to accompany, order a custom-built shake, with or without alcohol.
