Today, Serious Eats Grand Poobah Ed Levine jumped onto A Hamburger Today to pen a review love letter to Prime Burger, the full of charm old school Midtown burger spot on 51st btw. Mad+5th. It’s kind of surprising, considering that Nick Solares tore the place apart on the very same website when he reviewed the place back in April. In fairness to Nick though he didn’t follow all of the “ordering rules”.
According to Ed, Prime Burger started pre-cooking their burgers to keep up with the fast food burgers spots in Midtown- so if you want the full experience you have to “specify you want your burger made from scratch, and that you’re willing to wait the extra few minutes.” He also says to ask the broiler man to salt the burger before cookingit. Do all this, and according to Ed you’ll end up with “a juicy burger that tastes a lot like a Shake Shack burger.”
