There's a Secret 'Burger Joint' Inside This Swanky NYC Hotel
Burger Joint opened in Le Parker Meridien hotel in 2002. Since then, nine more locations have opened across the world. This one is the original, and it's the only one that's hidden. Following is the transcript of the video.
Le Parker Meridien hotel is hiding something. Behind the red curtain, down a dark corridor, is a delicious burger in a secret dive restaurant called Burger Joint. The menu is simple— it's just burgers, fries, and coleslaw. You can choose your burger toppings. Or just get it with "the works" — cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup, mayo, and mustard. The walls are covered in graffiti. It's dimly lit— a contrast to the bright, sparkling lobby. Burger Joint has been open for 15 years so word has certainly gotten around. But some hotel guests still don't know it's there. It's a little hard to spot. If you look closely, the hints are there. For a classic burger at $8.96 in midtown Manhattan, it's worth the hunt.
