Island Burger update

Mark Sinclair | Mar 15, 2004 10:13 AM

This morning I walked past Island Burger and saw the metal gate rolled up for the first time in quite a while. There's a fresh coat of bright white paint, and even though there appeared to be no furniture whatsoever in the place, there was a sign on the door reading, "Burgers 3/16... Still no fries!"

Even though as somebody else pointed out, you can get basically the same food from Sandwich Planet that you can from Island Burger, I still think this reopening is sort of exciting. 9th Avenue hasn't been the same thrilling place, food-wise, for the past few years, and I would have been distraught if Island Burger had decided to close up shop and make room for another nail salon.
