4. Burger Joint of Le Parker Meridian

2-Burger Joint Interior II

Hidden inside the Le Parker Meridian hotel in Midtown, this tiny burger shop is located behind curtains in the hotel’s lobby. Though well known—so not much of a secret anymore—it still serves up great burgers and always allows you to feel as though you found a gem. The burger’s also happen to be some of the best in the city, giving reason for the often long line.
