Closet Confection: Burger Joint

January 26, 2013

{Gap Sweater, Elegancia Jacket (similar), Forever 21 Jeans, Chloe Aurore Handbag (tote version here, similar from Coach here),  Burberry Sneakers}

Today’s message is operating under the guise of an outfit post… but what I really want to talk about is one of my favorite (not so) hidden treasures in the city: Burger Joint.  I consider myself to be somewhat of a burger connoisseur (feel free to email me if you want my personal list of first-rate picks), and in my opinion this place offers one of the top no-frills burgers in town.  In addition to delicious eats, Burger Joint also serves up a really cool location.  It’s discreetly tucked away behind a curtain in the lobby of the super-swanky Le Parker Meridien Hotel and operates kind of like a burger speakeasy.  It’s always fun to see friends’ reactions when I walk them through the hotel’s posh mirror-lined and chandelier-trimmed atrium, only to wind up scarfing down fries out of paper bag in a wood-paneled room with graffiti on the walls 10 minutes later!

So now that we’ve gotten burgers out of the way, I will tell you about today’s outfit which includes two of my best bargain finds by far.  The first is my Chloe bag, which if you recall from a previous post, I scored for more than 80% off due to a combination of chatting up a lonely sales associate and a computer error at Bloomingdale’s.  And the second is my surprisingly lightweight but oh-so-toasty shearling leather jacket that I scooped up at  Daffy’s store-closing sale.  Every time I wear this jacket it serves as a testament that there is truly no shame in my clearance rack shopping game as this beauty was originally priced at over $1000, and I nabbed it for under $100.

    Omg, I am truly drooling! I had no idea that Le Parker Meridien even had a burger place! I will definitely be checking it out ASAP!
    And talk about some shopping scores! $1,000 to $100? That’s amazing.

    Love your blog!

    I think this restaurant was covered on one of Anthony Bourdain’s shows. Yum! We’ll be in NYC in about a month. Maybe I’ll talk my hubby into it. I’m sure I won’t have to do much arm twisting. 😉

    Even though I’m a vegetarian, that burger looks absolutely delicious! I checked out the Burger Joint’s site and unfortunately they don’t serve veggie burgers. =/ Oh well.

    No shame in the clearance rack game. =)

      Yeah, they have a very limited menu. But the fries alone are definitely worth it!
