30 Hot New Burgers For Labor Day Weekend

View as Map

It's Labor Day weekend, which means it's time to break out the grill and make some burgers — or go to a restaurant that will happily do the hamburger grilling for you. To help inspire your weekend eating, Eater has rounded up 30 of the hottest new burger options in the country, from restaurants that have opened within the past 12 months.

Looking for something with dry aged funk? Check out burgers from Cherche Midi (NYC), Parts & Labor (Baltimore), and Ste. Ellie (Denver). Want a burger that amps up traditional toppings? Alta CA (SF), Knife (Dallas), and Grind Burger Kitchen (Louisville) are on it. Feeling like you want some foie gras with your burger America Eats Tavern (McLean, VA) and élan (NYC) have you covered.

Here now, and in alphabetical order, the Eater Burger Heatmap. See a buzzy new burger missing from the list? You know what to do.
