Burger Joint at the Parker Meridian Hotel

Parker Meridian Hotel Lobby Midtown, east, New York, USA. Popular burger joint. Part of Food Persuasion taking on NYC.

You need a freaking map to find this burger joint but it’s worth it.

Burger Joint is situated behind curtains in the corner of the Parker Meridian lobby, right beside the concierge desk. There is large sign and you have to walk through a dark makeshift path.

Inside the decor reminds me of a midtown local dive bar, although I doubt anyone here was a local. Most look like tourists. Furnished with wooden bar benches and booths and, celebrity photos and autographs and strewn throughout the walls.
packed house

It was packed, so we decided to take it up to our rooms. (Special thanks to Eman for hooking us with a gorgeous 1 bedroom suite on the sub-penthouse floor at the Parker Meridian)

The burger was juicy, so much more than I expected that the juice squirted all over the front of my shirt. The fries are norm, not anything special the patty itself is a must try.
