The Top Burgers By Town: White Plains

Three White Plains BID restaurants made it to Westchester Magazine's list of best burgers by town!

The Birch Collective
91 Mamaroneck Avenue, (914) 437-9065
The only thing bigger than the mammoth one-liter Mason-jar cocktails at this hip, Canadian-inspired gastropub started by two Montreal natives is their Birch Burger. Cutlery definitely is needed to tackle the well-seared burger topped with a wonderful house-made bacon jam, confit tomato, and exceptional cheddar. And don’t forget to dip the speared, fried pickle atop the brioche bun into the side of Big Birch sauce. O Canada, indeed!

BLT Steak
221 Main Street, (914) 467-5500
If any burger could epitomize the classic feel, giant portions, and attention to quality of a steakhouse, it’s this one. Weighing in at close to 12 oz, BLT grinds its own mix of sirloin (for beefy flavor) and filet (for supreme tenderness), then smothers it in orange cheddar and tops it with Nueske’s bacon, LTO, and burger sauce. No frilly garnishes here (and available on the bar menu only).

KEE Oyster House
126-128 East Post Road, (914) 437-8535
You’ll need two hands and a wide mouth for the 10-oz, steakhouse-grade beef patty at this restaurant, where the smartly dressed servers match the high-style décor. “The ratio [75% lean/25% fat] keeps it moist and juicy,” says partner Elvi Hoxhaj. “You want some drip.” There’s applewood-smoked bacon atop from Wisconsin boutique smoked-meat producer Nueske’s but no cheese unless it’s asked for (the chef thinks it detracts from the beef’s starring role). The brioche bun, branded with the word “KEE”, is a neat gimmick and makes for a proper Instagram post. Of note: It’s officially on the lunch menu only.
