City Burger Not Feeling the Love From City Burger-Eaters

We’re not surprised: Despite their use of La Frieda burger meat, the proprietors’ backgrounds are in pizza. It’s no easy thing to build a great burger; just ask the legion of chains that have been buried over the years by public indifference. (Lesson one: If you have a juicy, delicious burger blend, try not cooking it until it turns into a hockey puck.) The final word, both literally and figuratively, is given by a Midtown Lunch commenter: “When I went, they could not even figure out how to cook a medium-rare burger for the ONLY customer in the restaurant. I dunno about you, but that’s just uncool.”
