The Burgermeister was located in a tiny location on Langstrasse from 2016 serving up a small and extremely well done menu with seating for around 15 people. In 2018 they closed that location and reopened in two new different and larger ones, partnering with Brooklyn Bar to offer more of a restaurant experience and some tasty beer.
On this visit we went to the newest addition by Escher Wyss Platz.
Before explaining, I can inform you the burgermeister sells the best burger in Zurich.
The burgers are handmade daily in the restaurant and the small menu not only helps to ensure fast cooking time but an uncomplicated choice. Everyone I’ve taken there have agreed the burgers are awesome and will return.
For me, this is the epitome of a burger bar, it’s simple food cooked very well. It’s how I imagine those takeaway burgers in American movies look and taste, juicy and meaty and i’m not sure I can find other words to convey how I enjoy them!
At this location, the tables are a mix of large benches and tables for two people. A social environment and nice area outside when the weather allows. The format here is to order food/drink at the bar and your order will be delivered to the table. This allows you to enjoy at your leisure and leave, takeaway is also an option. I may have used it more than a few times! The Sihlpost location is a little different in setup, I’ll review it later.
Go there. Either venue. Enjoy the burgers and thank me later!
