Here's an interesting tease from the folks over at Eater New York: Burger Joint, one of the city's cult burger destinations, just opened up a second New York location in Greenwich Village. But they aren't stopping there. International locations are on the way, and the president of the hotel where the restaurant is located says they'd like to expand elsewhere in the United States. The two cities he's considering: D.C. and Cambridge.
There's no real timetable, though. "We're self-funded and we are more reactionary than we are strategic about things like this," says president Steven Pipes. "If someone comes up to us with a whacky idea that we like, maybe we'll go for it. We don't have a five-year plan or even a two-year plan."
The original Burger Joint has operated for ten years inside the Le Parker-Meridien Hotel — the burgers are a popular favorite in New York. Let the name confusion with BGR: The Burger Joint begin.
