S and I have a wonderful weekend tradition. After minding our calories via careful menu choices all week, Friday is our night to eat whatever we want. Hello, cheat meal!
This weekend's selection? A return visit to the scrumptious 5 Napkin Burger.
This upscale NYC burger restaurant serves a tasty selection of juicy burgers and other treats in its bistro style dining room designed with floor to ceiling white subway tiles, sleek leather booths and hanging vintage lightbulbs.

The menu boasts a selection of rocking burger options. We kept things naughty with an adorable order of tiny pork taquitos to start

and the classic 5 Napkin Burger (so named because its juiciness is said to require 5 five napkins).
This burger has a lot going on. From the gruyere cheese with rosemary aioli to the caramelized onions, this burger is RICH. It's also evilly delicious.
Not in the mood for the above? 5 Napkins also offers an out-of-this-world Ahi tuna burger, lobster sliders, sushi rolls, salads, fish and chips as well as a Kobe beef hot dog (if you are that guy).
Finish things off right with the Dark and Stormy Float (made with rum raisin ice cream and ginger beer).

Wake up the following morning and make a beeline for the gym.
