With so many top-notch restaurants in Manhattan, going out to eat can sometimes feel like a Broadway production. Between figuring out what kind of cuisine everyone is in the mood for, which neighborhood to dine in, your meal budget, making a reservation, the atmosphere, and so on… stepping out for a good, quality bite to eat is a lot closer to your Glenwood apartment than you think!

With that being said, we have the perfect place for you to check out this May. We present to you Glenwood’s restaurant of the month: Hero Burgers!

The Origins of Hero Burgers

Hero Burgers was first started when cheese maker and founder John F. Lettieri was on the hunt for a 100% Angus burger with real cheese. Believe it or not, he soon realized it was nearly impossible to find one outside of high-end restaurants. Lettieri was a firm believer that anyone with a burger craving should have access to one, and this is what inspired the birth of Hero Certified Burgers!

The vision he created for all the Hero Burger locations is to provide customers with real, wholesome food that is raised sustainably. All of the restaurant’s meat is not only 100% Angus, but also raised without hormones or antibiotics. With that, you can feel good about the burger on your plate!

The Restaurant Vibe

Newly opened on the Upper East Side at 453 East 78th Street, Hero Burgers is exactly where you’d want to go next time you’re craving a hearty American burger. Not to mention, the sides are to die for! The place is casual, so you don’t need to worry about putting on your Friday night finest. In fact, it’s actually the perfect spot to come to refuel after a spring afternoon in Central Park, or taking part in one of May’s monthly events in Manhattan!

Glenwood residents living in the Upper East Side will be the first to gain an appetite. Those living in The Pavilion, specifically, are just steps away from this neighborhood hot spot.
