SUPER model Gigi Hadid has turned heads on the runway with her mesmerizing walk and jaw-dropping looks.
When she's not walking in Paris or Milan, Hadid is sharing her love for good food — specifically burgers.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Gigi Hadid revealed that her favorite New York City hamburger comes from the Upper East Side's J.G. Melon.
I also love burgers, so naturally I headed uptown from my midtown newsroom to have a taste for myself.
The ambiance of the iconic New York staple is old school rock and roll, complete with a jukebox playing nostalgic tunes.
The burger arrived steaming hot with toppings on the side so I could perfectly customize it to my taste.
I went with my favorite burger toppings — dijon mustard and pickles.
After the first bite I immediately knew why the A-list celebrity dubbed this her new favorite New York City burger.
It was the perfect balance of simple yet quality ingredients, but not too greasy.
At $12.50, Gigi's favorite is definitely at a lower price point than other sit-down burger joints in the city.

Although the size of the burger was a bit small for American standards, it was filling and invigorated my taste for the classic dish.
For the small price tag in comparison to other Manhattan eateries, it was absolutely worth a try.
If you're especially hungry, I would recommend ordering a side dish with it, especially their perfectly crispy cottage fries.
The whimsical restaurant opened in 1972 and not much has changed since.
J.G. Melon is still a cash-only establishment playing tunes from the yesteryear.
The casual spot attracts celebrities and locals alike and established itself as a New York City favorite.
When I visited, I witnessed a variety of faces one would expect to see in the Big Apple, including couples, writers, and people who didn't bat an eye at me filming myself eating a burger.
The maximalist artwork transported me back in time, including still life portraits of watermelon hanging above the bar — possibly a play-on-words of the restaurant's moniker.
