NYC: LT Burger Midtown

LT Burger 
8 W 40th St, New York, NY 10018

Having a celebrity eatery be instantaneously successful can boil down to what it 
can give you once you walk through the doors. With Laurent Tourondel, you are
certain to get a dining experience that delights the palate no matter the cuisine.
And so, we have the second restaurant of his with hamburgers as the dish of 
prominence. After the success he had in Sag Harbor, New York, Tourondel opened
up LT Burger right by Bryant Park. So far, it has proven to be a great success. A
recent visit during the week found the place buzzing with activity, but there was
never the sense of feeling crowded once you entered. The waitstaff was highly 
attentive; even sitting at the bar, they checked in with you every so often. The 
menu is definitely eye-catching as far as burger choices go. The Standard was a 
satisfying choice, but The Mexican, replete with chili enchiladas, fresh guacamole,
pickled jalapenos and monterey jack cheese was excellent. Their smoked gouda 
curly fries were sinfully delightful as well. One other standout element to LT Burger
was their drinks list. While the wine list wasn’t too big, they more than made up
for it with an extensive beer list as well as specialty cocktails. (They even have a 
Happy Hour, from 5-7 PM during the week.) LT Burger is definitely a nice place to
get a classic American dish with a refined but relaxed spin.
