Fun Lunch Spot

I really like Rare for lunch. It has a rooftop deck and the burger on brioche is fantastic. If you asked for Mango on your burger, I bet they would have it. Won't break the bank, and a real hipster crowd.

Best burgers ever?

Being British, we walked 20 blocks to this restaurant, and boy was it worth it! I can honestly say it is the BEST burger restaurant I have EVER been to! Our waitress was extremely helpful, nothing too much trouble. There is an extensive selection of burgers and the like to choose from and I was spoilt for choice as were the other four members of our party. If we get to NY again, this place will certainly be on the 'm... view more

Burgers, Burgers, Burgers

If you're in the mood for the best burger of your life...RUN to Rare Bar & Grill. Stopped in one night for a quick bite and didn't realize what an amazing experience I was getting myself into. I started with Fried Calamari & the Spinach Artichoke Dip, moved onto the M & M Burger (which is flambeed in whiskey) and a side of Parmesan Truffle Fries. From start to finish my meal was delicious, staff was friendly and help... view more

Dieting? Forget it!

You can easily share a burger here at Rare (tucked in the Affinia Shelburne Hotel), but you won't want to! You'll want to eat the whole thing and lick the plate clean. Yes, the burgers are that good! We stopped in recently, rather early on a weekday evening, and had to wait a bit for a table, but finally settled on a high top near the bar. Drinks are generous in size, service is friendly and informal. Noise leve... view more

Rare roof experience

A large roof deck for warm evening cocktails. It does offer the (as advertised) sweeping views of our lovely lower midtown skyline. A vast expansive space with little alcoves that offer spaces that offer the opportunity for conversation away from the masses. Weeknight evening find this spot filled with the suited after work crowd. Weekend afternoons into evening offer a more relaxed atmosphere. Navigating throu... view more

Nice for a drink after work

Met up with some old and new friends on a Wednesday night after work. The staff was very friendly, drinks were fine, but since still early in the summer... got a bit cool outside early and there were no propane heaters like other venues to sit underneath. I would go back again, once the weather warms up a bit more.

Damn Good Dirty Brunch

I had been perusing CitySearch for a good brunch place around Grand Central...I came across Rare, which I thought was just a burger joint, and curiously checked out their menu. They had the most unhealthy, greasy, dirty, and DELICIOUS menu...So I had to check it out...\r The following meals were what we ordered (along with descriptions):\r -Kobe Beef Omelet: Did I say Dirty and DELICIOUS?! This thing was huge, g... view more

Great place for mojitos!!

I stopped by after work with a few friends.... It wasnt too crowded at that point, and our waitress was very prompt and friendly. We decided on mojitos ( a little pricey- but worth it), and just enjoyed the scenery, the music ( the speakers could be upgraded a bit) and of course, the conversation. I was also pleased that I was able to purchase a cigar right there on the roof. The only downfall was that there was ... view more

Cute place to sit outside until the crowds come

Took a good 20 min to get the elevator ride up/down. When it's less crowded it's easy to get drinks and find a place to hang out. When the crowds come, it feels like there's no place to go and no way to get to a bar or waitress. The view is nice, but the tall fences take away from it a little, I guess it's a NYS law b/c all the roof tops have them. Drinks are a little pricey, but again, NYC.
