Description5 Napkin Burger
5 Napkin Burger has a few locations. This one is the original at the corner of 9th Ave and 45th Street in Hell's Kitchen. Good place for pre and post theater dining.
One single door entrance is on 45th Street and another is on 9th Ave. There is also a door at the rear on 45th street that opens into the bar area . Tables and chairs are also located here. If a patron is using a wheelchair this would probably be the best place to enter because the interior of the rest of the restaurant might be difficult to navigate since the aisles are fairly narrow.
The restrooms are located in the rear to the left of the bar.
There are 3 unisex single occupancy units. One is a large handicapped accessible room complete with sink and baby changing station.

On a steamy Tuesday in August, my friend and I had tickets to the theater. We decided to try a well known place, 5 Napkin Burger, because we had never eaten there. Knowing that it is very popular, we made a reservation on Open Table. When we arrived at 5 the restaurant, located on the corner of 45th Street and 9th Ave, was fairly empty but by the time we left, the place was packed. Make a reservation before you go.
There is one single door entrance on 45th Street and another one on 9th Ave. The dining area has both booths and tables with chairs. The aisles are very narrow. Navigating with a walker is doable but a wheelchair would be problematic unless you got a table right in front. There is another entrance located on 45th Street which is at the rear of the restaurant and leads into the bar area. A wheelchair can enter through here and there are tables and chairs as well as the bar.
The restrooms are located in the bar area to the left. They are unisex single occupancy and one is a large fully equipped handicapped accessible unit with a baby changing station.
We had a lovely time. If you like hamburgers, french fries, and onion rings as much as I do, it is a fine place to dine.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.5napkinburger.com, when planning a visit, to “Know Before You Go”
