    Find the best burger in the city in this old school burger shack hidden in the lobby of the Parker Meridien. -Andy Cohen, Watch What Happens Live!

    Le Parker Meridien Hotel is a white marble minimalist palace. So it's surprising that it stinks like burgers. Hidden just off the lobby is the best burger in mid-town. - IFC Staff

    Tony claims it is your patriotic duty to order a burger medium rare. As seen on Travel Channel’s The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.

    To avoid the outrageous lines, call ahead to order your burger with the works. You are able to cut the entire line, and become the envy of the 40 starving people waiting for their meal.

    Okay, this place is all it's cracked up to be. Hint: if you're looking for seconds, sweet talk one of the tourists in line into placing an order for you.

    The city's worst-kept burger secret: This low-key spot behind a velvet curtain in the upscale Le Parker Meridien Hotel.

    Food & Wine · May 17, 2011
  • Time Out New York

    Evoking a 1970s snack shack, burger offerings here are kept simple—a yellow-and-white-cheddar blend, Heinz ketchup, straight-from-the-bag Arnold buns and the usual lettuce-tomato-pickle toppings. (RC) Read more

    Hidden place in Le Parker Meridien Hotel. Look for the neon burger sign by the lobby's curtains and follow your nose! One of the best burgers, fries and shakes in town. They have beer, too.

    Go through the Parker Meridien Hotel and find the Burger Joint and order a cheeseburger, fries and a shake. Brownie's are great too, if you still have space.

    Go to burger joint in the Le Parker Meridian hotel. Nothing beats a dive burger joint in a four star hotel. You'll find Burger Joint behind the hotel concierge desk.

    It’s kind of exciting to know a place like this not only exists, but thrives within one of the fanciest hotel establishments in town. The menu is simple but sweet, offering the best of burger fare... Read more

    Know what you're ordering before you get to the register.. and bring at least one person to scout out a seat while you wait in line or don't expect to eat there.

    Once you're done eating, clean your table and leave; let the people eat their burgers while they're hot.

    Try to find this place. HINT* look for the neon burger!

    great for taking out of town visitors to after you walk in Central Park. if you like horseradish then load up on the sauce in the ketchup bottles.

    A massive queue which dissipates fast. Stick it out, it's totally worth it. The downside was was that I didn't order two burgers. Delectable.

    Jack Osborne · October 8, 2012

    Go behind the red courtain and get the "the works", the cheeseburger that has everything in it. Get 2 of them cause you'll want another one!

    I'm gonna have to say, a bit over rated. Cool experience, great fries, meh burger. Shake shack kicks it's ass.

    Do not ignore the man behind this curtain. Get a cheeseburger, medium, with the works and fries. Consider a pitcher of Sam Adams and stay a while.

  • Eric F.

    This burger spot tucked away inside the hotel is great for a cheeseburger, fries, milk shake combo. 90s posters and signatures on the walls make the divebar-esque atmosphere. Worth the trip!

    Overpriced, but v good burger. Get the medium rare cheeseburger with the works, vanilla shake, and fries - $19.75 at the time of writing (!!). Efficient operation but v tiny kitchen - expect to wait.

    First you have to find the place... located within Le Meridien Hotel, after crossing posh reception and turning right. Quality is top notch and the meal is worth every $ and the wait in the queue!

    أصغر و ألذ مطعم برغر ذقته في حياتي ،، الطلب عندهم واحد فقط ، برغر أو تشيز برغر ، الفرايز خورافي ،، المطعم مشهور جداً و صغير جداً لدرجة ان مافيه الا ١٠-١١ طاولة فقط ،، ابرجع له مرة ثانية مايبيلها كلام

    Un sitio surrealista que no hay que dejar de visitar. Entras en el hotel Le Parker Meridian, buscas las cortinas rojas, te pierdes por ellas y apareces en un local en el que sólo sirven hamburguesas.

  • Freddos Freddos

    Καταπληκτικό μπέργκερ. Προτείνω το medium-rare ψήσιμο για φουλ γεύση & φυσικά "the works" (δηλαδή απ' όλα). Τρώγεται με λίγες, ζουμερές μπουκιές.

    O ambiente é interessantíssimo e inusitado para o local onde fica. Experimente um hamburguer e escreva seu recado na parede!

    Quando vejo este check-in só me apetece chorar. Se forem a NY e não passarem pelo Burger Joint, mais vale atirarem-se já ao Hudson. Melhor do mundo.
