Brooklyn’s Burger 67 Quietly Brings “Black Shack” to Midtown

Whoa!?!  How did we miss this one? Fork in the Road posted an interview today with the owners of The Black Shack, and brand new burger joint that just opened on Lex btw. 37+38th. They‘re using LaFreida beef, serve sweet potato fries, and their menu [PDF] is about as cheap as you’re going to find anywhere in Midtown. I’ve never been to Burger 67, the Fort Greene burger place with the same owners, but Nick Solares sounded like a fan when he wrote about it on A Hamburger Today (although he did say if they ever came to Manhattan “it would likely be lost in the shuffle, given the stiff competition it would face.”)

I know where I’m eating tomorrow…

    Waited 21 minutes to receive my order, which was one western burger. Brought it back to my desk, unwrapped it, and saw it was missing the top bun. Nice. The burger patty was nothing special and the BBQ sauce had a nasty aftertaste. God I can’t wait for Five Guys to open on 3rd Ave!
