Originally, this space concealed behind a curtain adjacent to the main desk of the Parker Meridien Hotel--the effect marred only by a garish neon sign--wanted to exist without a name, but Burger Joint soon stuck. Like an Off-Off-Off-Broadway show, the crew struggles at the grill behind the small counter, generating a menu confined to burgers (get "the works"), cheeseburgers, fries, sodas, bad lemonade, milkshakes (only after 2:30), and a decent brownie. The burgers are great in their own way, made with never-frozen beef with plenty of fat, which mainly dissolves in the licking flames. And what looks like a behemoth when it's slapped on the grill soon shrinks to a more modest size.
