Yummer on all accounts! JG Melon's was featured on Food Network's "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" - Burger edition.

I've never been. Is it worth the trip?

I've never been either - i just watch shows like that, start salivating and find myself licking my TV screen! HAHA! But I figure if the chefs featured on Food Network like it, it can't be all that bad, ay?

[2] I lived a block away, went there all the time. Excellent little place. The burger and the chili. I don't know if you need to make a special trip, but the next time you are on the UES, might as well.

Both locations of Motorino were featured in episodes of food shows I worked directly on. And both times, their pizza looked artistic, but tasted like spicy crackers that were dropped in the garden.
