Hamburger lovers and vegetarians alike lamented the closing of Prime Burger in midtown in 2012, after proprietors John and Michael DiMiceli abruptly learned that their decades-old diner didn't configure into the new owner's retail plans for the building. The DiMiceli brothers hinted at a possible relocation at the time, which now turns out to be a little more suburban than some had hoped, but here it is anyhow: The Prime is now up to full speed on Main Street. It may not have the sixties-era swiveling tabletops or space-agey hourglass lamps of the original, but it does have a stately new identity (it's "an American grille" with a full liquor license) and plenty of hamburgers, including "the Prime" itself, which comes with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and relish, for $12.95. And it's just a thirtysomething-minute ride away on Metro-North. [Larchmont Patch, Earlier]
