Midtown Burgers

There have always been a variety of burger options in the midtown area.  They come, they go, they stay; they open, they close, they relaunch, etc., etc.  Here, we take a look at what’s new in that world, and what burger lovers in the midtown area can expect to enjoy in the near future.

First off we have Andrew Zurica opening a burger stand at the UrbanSpace food hall.  There, hungry burger-seekers will be able to enjoy “griddle-smashed burgers and bacon-wrapped hot dogs.”  Until now these have only been sold from a truck, at a very inconvenient location.  It might not be the top quality meat but the added cheese and swaddle style that creates a melt-in-the-mouth sensation with its super soft white-floured bun, is quite the culinary delight.

For something a little fancier, there is a fantastic burger option at House Man Restaurant.  It has been deliciously described as follows:

“It involves two thin, crisp-edged patties with a faint line of pink running through each center, fused together with melted swiss cheese and a sweet, delicious black mass of deeply caramelized onion and mushroom. This is all contained in a Martin’s potato roll, the ideal vehicle for a burger because while it’s pleasingly squishy, it knows how to hold itself together under the duress of dripping cheese and beef juice.”

So that’s a good start.  Midtowners certainly won’t go hungry with a lack of burger options.
