admittedly, the ny times alerted me of the existence of Royale, and I'm always up for a new entry into the NYC burger pantheon.
Really liked the set-up, vibe, etc.
Unfortunately, no burgers to sample.
This brings up an interesting question: If you're a Manhattan restaurateur and you receive a great review similar to the one that Peter Meehan gave to Royale in the Times, don't you immediately make sure that you increase your meat order for hamburgers?
The place was packed and our waitress indicated that it was a dramatic difference compared to prior to the review...
I hope I get to try their burger soon.
