A friend of mine set up a get together recently for beverages and to grab a bite at the Burger Joint in the West Village (sister to the original in the Parker Meridian Hotel). There is something to be said for doing one thing and doing it right and Burger Joint serves a burger with or without cheese. I recommend it with the works…lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, mustard and mayo…it’s a great burger and it’s under $10. For sides they have very good MickyD style Fries served in a brown bag. Aside from that you can get a Pickle and for desert a Brownie.
To drink they have a Milkshake which you can get spiked and a full bar with a very good selection on tap including Rare Vos, Lagunitas IPA, and Abita Haze. Needless to say I’ll have to try the share another time. If you love Burgers check this place out and if you want to avoid the busy and packed midtown rush lunch head down to the West Village location.
Burger Joint is located at 33 West 8th Street
