Prime Burger Owners Confirm the Midtown Institution Will Close This Weekend


Bad news, burger lovers — and New Yorkers in general: Eater gets confirmation that Prime Burger, the old-school diner on 51st Street that is Americana incarnate, will shut its doors this Saturday. They first heard of the closing on Monday but didn’t know which day would be the last. The restaurant may relocate, and can hopefully take its sixties-style charm with it. To vicariously appreciate the appeal of the current location, check out the video love letter from earlier this year, below.
