Bosna Express


The absolute best burger in New York City, but not your typical American style by any means... the pljeskavica ($9, below) will wow you at this tiny takeout establishment. Even though it is cut into more convenient quarters, the giant (yet thin) sandwich is not easy to eat standing up, so grab the one table if you can as the sour cream and onions will be dripping all over.

It had been three years and a lot of press since my last visit, but the burger is as good as ever, if a tiny bit smaller than my memory served. It is a still a crowd pleaser though, but I would recommend asking for extra ajvar (a magic red pepper sauce), despite its hefty $1 charge.

The cevapi ($5 for 5 pieces, $8 for 10) is just another way to eat the same meat, served in small links that you can eat with the bread and ajvar.

I only wish I worked around here...

A view of the old facade.
