The Schnipper brothers, Jonathan and Andrew, are passionate food lovers who first founded Hale and Hearty Soups and now are spreading the love of burgers at Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen. I’m a fan of the basic cheeseburger. The patty, a custom Pat LaFrieda blend of chuck, brisket and short rib from Creekstone Farms, is topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion and American cheese on a bun. All the ingredients are fresh and juicy, so while it’s flavorful, there’s no heavy aftertaste. At just 4 ounces (at the 23rd Street location; the cheeseburger at 41st Street is 5.5 ounces) the cheeseburger is easily manageable, allowing me to try other goodies from the diverse menu including sloppy joes, mac and cheese and salads. Like neighboring Shake Shack, Schnipper’s serves beer and wine, which makes this fast food experience even more enjoyable. I love the overall experience — a fun concept, large space, delicious food and good service. Best of all, I’m already enjoying my meal while folks are still waiting in line a block over in Madison Square Park.
