Adam Kuban is all about Midtown this week! Yesterday, we linked to his post on Slice about Angelo’s, and today he posts about the burger at the Brooklyn Diner (57th btw. 7+8th).  Even better… it’s a lunch he shared with our very own Profiled Midtown Lunch’er “Lawrence” (aka Superman aka NYC Food Guy).  Once again it’s out of M.L. price range, but damn does it look tasty.

  • This is NYC Food Guy’s top burger in NYC. You need to see a picture of this burger to do it justice. Here’s my review.

  • Is the W 43d st location as good as the 57th st?

  • Haven’t actually been to the 43rd street location yet JR. I’m going to have to check it out. Adam Kuban of A Hamburger Today said the 57th street location is better. I’ll take his word.

  • Thanks for the reply, Food Guy. I work close to the 43d st so I ordered the cheeseburger for delivery yesterday. (Didn’t have time to leave the office for lunch.) It was a pretty impressive burger, but it suffered from the delivery. By the time it got to me, the fries and fried onions were a bit soggy, and the burger itself wasn’t hot. I’m not sure I’m crazy about the brioche bun; it’s a little rich for my taste. I’ll have to go to the restaurant and try it again. Will report back.
