April Bloomfield Is Closing Salvation Burger

The burger had its fans, but the location wasn’t great.

April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman opened Salvation Burger in February of 2016 t0 much excitement, but while the all-American concept was strong, the location inside the Pod Hotel in Midtown East never seemed like a great fit. Then, a kitchen fire hit the restaurant and caused it to close for 7 months, which can be devastating to a business at any degree of popularity. Now they’ve decided to close the restaurant, following service this Saturday. No salvation!

In a letter to staff, they write they had “difficulty picking up steam following our reopening.” Still, they say: “This will not be the last that you hear of Salvation Burger. We believe in its spirit and hope to find a new home when the time is right.” The plus-side is that they can relocate their employees to their other restaurants, including newly opened White Gold, which is already a hit.
