From the outside, LT Burger might look like your run-of-the-mill burger joint. But the inside paints a very different picture. Marble floors, huge art deco-style lamps hanging from the ceiling and curvy chocolate colored leather banquettes make this space very special. The other special thing is the guy running the joint, star chef Laurent Tourondel, who chose Bryant Park as the showcase for his new burger palace, which also includes a full bar.
The other thing you'll notice is the aroma. While the smell of beef cooking on the grill can be a turn off to some, burger lovers will eat it up. It definitely made us hungry for one. I sampled The Standard, a 7-ounce certified Angus beef patty, about three-quarters of an inch thick. It arrived with just the right amount of char and stacked high with lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickles on a toasted potato bun. It is a large burger ($9) and I guess I liked it because it was gone in a matter of minutes.
