Burger Joint is beloved by locals and tourists alike - not only for the food, but for the ambiance. It's not a corner deli, nor a vendor on the street. It's a true hole in a wall nestled in the most unlikely of places.
Yes, it's located in the swanky Le Parker Meridien hotel!
Away from the marble floors and bright sunshine, covered by a heavy brown curtain, lies the worst kept secret in NYC. There's usually a long line that indicates this hidden hideaway, but to our surprise, it was not busy when we arrived (noon on a weekday).
This is it! Wood-paneled walls, dim lighting, and the delicious aroma of burgers on the grill. Burger Joint's menu is short and simple - burger, cheeseburger, fries, a few beverages, and Sam Adams beer.Shake Shack, but for midtown Manhattan, this is the best burger. Part of the fun is finding this gem, making Burger Joint worth a look.
Burger Joint is located within Le Parker Meridien at 119 W 56th St (btwn 5th and 6th Aves.)
