Fairly large restaurant with most tables full, but we did not have to wait. Nice bar running the length of the back of the restaurant. Service very prompt and friendly. Burgers were great and one person at our table got a breakfast platter of eggs, bacon, home fries and salad, which looked very fresh. Prices pretty reasonable. A good place... More

Shake shack had a ridiculous line so we mapped "burgers" and found 5 Napkins around the corner. It was great. Large burgers (half pound?) and best Peppermint shake anywhere. And the decor with Christmas lights was festive. Highly recommend.

Great burgers with attentive service. Attended this restaurant two times throughout our stay. Recommended getting there early due to queues-although we witnessed queues to be managed well and efficiently.

We were looking for a nice not very expensive burger restaurant! We found the right place. For starters the lady who welcomed us was smiling and gave us without waiting a table. Our server Robert (who by the way was fantastic) took good care of us.You should definitely try the texican salad and the avocado burger.Fries don't come along with... More

On our short trip to New York, we had dinner at 5 Napkins on 9th avenue. Good and efficient service. The place is very busy so you may need to book if you don't want to wait. Large choice of burgers in a very friendly atmosphere. Recommended place few blocks from the touristic Broadway.

Wasn't impressed with the avocado salad, but it is a burger joint. When in Rome...order a burger and you won't be disappointed. I had the Merguez and it was everything I thought it could be. I was sad after the last bite. I can't remember what burger my wife ordered but it too was delicious. We also split a smore... More

The blue Cheese burger was fantastic. I had brussel sprouts that were cooked perfectly. We were a large party but our waiter handled our many requests efficiently and courteously.

I visited this place twice. One in December 2012 and the second in June 2016. The service, the food and the ambience have remained at the same high standards. Love the blue cheese burger and the garlic butter broccoli on the side. The decoration is very industrial which is my favorite. The service is very good. It is one of... More

We were advised to visit here as the best burgers in midtown. Our tour guide said it's called 5 napkins and we would need 5 napkins. He wasn't wrong. The juices are truly flowing in this place. I was in burger heaven - bacon and cheddar burger. Not the cheapest, but certainly not expensive for NYC. Only a few blocks... More

We opted as a burger for our last meal before travelling home. Thank you Shake Shak for being a heaving mass of tourists taking pictures. So we headed another block to 5 Naps'. Awesome burgers, wings and fries. We thought they were the best we had 'ever' had? It was rammo when we left, so you may want to book.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
