Blogger Manhattan Transfer pays a visit to the secret burger joint in the Parker Meridien Hotel on West 56th Street:
To get there you enter through the modern glass façade of the hotel, walk through the shiny lobby past the check-in desk, and follow an enormous floor to ceiling curtain long a narrow passage running perpendicular to the desk. At the end of the corridor is an unmarked door on the right. Stepping through the door is like entering another world. You go from glitzy New York hotel to divey, greasy, burger heaven in the distance of a threshold. And the food? "The patrons are surly, the staff is unaccommodating, and the burgers are great."
