For almost twenty years, Burger Joint was a staple in New York City's burger and secret restaurant scene, having opened its doors in 2002. Unfortunately, when the Parker New York Hotel (previously known as the Parker Meridien) closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Burger Joint also shut down. In a city where change is constant, it is rare to see a place come back exactly as it was before, but that is precisely what has happened. On November 1st, 2021, Burger Joint returned with the reopening of the hotel, now known as the Thompson Central Park.

Burger Joint is more than just a burger joint; it's an experience that ignites the senses and celebrates the art of crafting extraordinary burgers. With each bite, we discovered a symphony of flavors that took us on a culinary adventure. From their classic creations to their innovative and vegan options, Burger Joint proved that a burger can be more than just a quick meal; it can be a gastronomic delight.

If you're a burger aficionado or simply someone in search of a satisfying meal, make your way to Billionaire's Row and visit Burger Joint and embark on a journey of taste and indulgence. Trust us, your taste buds will thank you.
