Our Story

Prime 16 first opened in April 2008 by Bob Potter, bringing the highest quality beef burgers and craft beer to downtown New Haven. In a city known nationally for pizza, along with being the birth place of the hamburger, Prime 16 has evolved from gourmet burgers and expanded its scratch kitchen to offer more gastropub style food.

All our sauces, dressings, specialty ketchups and mustards are made in-house. We use only All-Natural beef raised by a family of farmers committed to sustainable and humane practices. All our Angus beef is traceable and meets the highest standards. That means…

No added hormones
No antibiotics
Fed all-vegetarian feeds

This results in the most delicious, satisfying and nutritious burger you’ll find. We also support area businesses and have partnered with local bakeries, breweries, creameries and beverage companies.
