Burger Joint information
With only a small neon burger as your clue, this cash-only, speakeasy-style burger hut lurks behind the lobby curtain in the Le Parker Meridien hotel. Though it might not be as 'hip' or as 'secret' as it once was, it still delivers the same winning formula of graffiti-strewn walls, retro booths and attitude-loaded staff slapping up beef 'n' patty brilliance.
The choice is easy: hamburger or cheeseburger, cooked to your liking and pimped with your choice of garnishes. Order a side of golden fries, a pitcher of beer and scan the walls for celebrity scribbles. Head in early or late, or prepare to wait.
