BREAKING NEWS: Five Guys Famous Burgers Coming to Midtown
It looks like Midtown is getting another burger place. On Monday it was all about the new Goodburger at 45th btw. 5+6th… now it’s the D.C. based Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries. According to signs on the closed Imperial Dragon on 55th btw. 5+6th, Five Guys will be opening there at some point this summer.
The news has been out for a few weeks that Five Guys would be opening a new location in Brooklyn Heights (to add to their location in Queens). But it looks like after that… it’s coming to Midtown. The place is already huge in D.C., and much of the East coast (so watch out Burger Joint!)
Looking for more info? There were two great articles this month in A Hamburger Today & Gothamist about the Queens location. (Both articles were also hanging in the window of Imperial Dragon). Word is that the burgers are served two on a patty, and only cooked well done- which they’ve mastered in a way that creates a really nice crunchy char without losing any of the juiciness. Both pieces are recommended reading… (and they’ve got some nice burger porn as well!)
