This is the third location of the old-school NYC burger spot that started out on the Upper East Side, and it has a similar feel to the others, with green checkered tablecloths and various melon-related artwork on the walls. You’re here for a burger and some cottage fries - basically big, soft potato chips - and if you make it during the daily Happy Hour from 5-7pm, you can get both those things plus a Stella for $18.
J.G. Melon is permanently closed.
