In 2003 Zaitzeff Burgers opened on 72 Nassau Street from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.  A year later New York Magazine choose Zaitzeff as one of the top 100 places to eat in New York City.

Zaitzeff  never compromises quality. Zaitzeff uses fresh, grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free beef that comes from small cooperatives in Washington and Oregon. We work together and are very proud of our stores.


Amine raised her family in Westchester.  In terms of mileage she has driven to the moon and back two and a half times.  She continues to work seven days a week.

Zach cycles, climbs mountains and rests when not working.  He summited Mt. Everest in May 2011 and can eat for free in Kathmandu.
