It appears as if the Midtown burger explosion has finally taken its toll on Burger Heaven. Last week we got word that the Burger Heaven on Madison btw 54th+55th had shut down, and was going to become a Japanese restaurant (following in the footsteps of another recently shuttered location on the Upper East Side). Then another commenter indicated that the one further down Madison, on 41st, had become “Heavenly Burger”. It’s pretty much a Burger Heaven clone, but clearly it’s not owned by the same people (in fact, we were told by somebody at Burger Heaven that the Heavenly Burger location had “lost its lease”, even though it is clearly still open.) And then there were three.

Heavenly Burger is Now Closed: Well, that didn't last long! According to Lunch'er Jonathon, Heavenly Burger (the restaurant fka as Burger Heaven) on Madison and 41st has closed. I guess that rumor about them losing their lease was true after all.

If you ever wondered how two Burger Heaven locations could operate so close to each other, and both stay in business, this news shouldn’t be a huge shocker. Lunch’er Harry reported in the forums that the Burger Heaven on Madison btw. 54+55th is now closed. Their website says “closed for renovations” but we hear that the space has been taken over by a new tenant and will become a Japanese restaurant.
Just got word that from now until 2pm future Celebrity Apprentice contestants Cyndi Lauper, Sharon Osbourne, and WWE Diva Maria are all working the lunch shift at the Burger Heaven on 62nd and Lexington. Not sure if you can sit or just take burgers to go, but the lines are already forming and their phone has been re-routed to a different Burger Heaven location where they have they no idea what’s going on. Thankfully Midtown Lunch’er Scott is sending us updates from the line (including the photo above.) As soon as he finds out what’s going on, he’ll hopefully let us know… or you can throw caution to the wind and just head over now!
UPDATE: “Cyndi is my waitress!! She just served me.” Photo and live updates from the scene are after the jump…
