American restaurant chain BurgerFi is set to return to New York City with the opening of its Better Burger Lab on the Upper East Side.

The new establishment, situated at 1571 Second Ave, will open on 4 April 2024.

The opening will feature New York City exclusive items such as the Everything Bagel Burger: a blend of natural Angus beef, Havarti cheese, grilled onions, a cage-free fried egg, and garlic and herb Boursin cheese served on an Everything Bagel.

It will also serve the NYC Hot Dog made with American wagyu beef and topped with spicy brown mustard and sauerkraut.

The Better Burger Lab also offers new Prime Rib Burgers, Fried and Grilled Chicken Sandwiches, a Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich, a Grilled Chicken Salad Bowl and NYC-only wing flavours.

Among these are Ghost Pepper Honey Jumbo Chicken Wings and Lemon Pepper Jumbo Chicken Wings.

BurgerFi International CEO Carl Bachmann said: “We know, as a brand, that guests are looking for unique dining experiences, which means we need to go where the guest is in life. That’s why we created the Better Burger Lab in our flagship restaurant to craft distinctive experiences and get real-time feedback from guests.

“The Better Burger Lab will be the launching pad for innovation we plan to introduce across our system. Guests can try our new Fried Chicken Sandwich as a sneak peek preview only in NYC and our Breakfast Everything Bagel Burger is an exclusive NYC store product offering.”

In January 2024, BurgerFi expanded its menu nationwide with the introduction of the Yes, Chef Burger.

This consists of two hand-smashed Angus beef patties, chargrilled onions and melted American cheese. In December 2023, the restaurant chain launched the first co-branded location in Kissimmee, Florida, in collaboration with Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Wings.
