With Andrew Zurica’s famed burger stand arriving at UrbanSpace’s food hall, midtown lunchers will finally have access to the griddle-smashed burgers and bacon-wrapped hot dogs that the peripatetic chef used to only sell from the truck he parked, frustratingly, in what seemed to be the remotest corners of Brooklyn. For the uninitiated, Zurica practices the venerable art of the griddle-smashed, four-ounce patty, made in this case from deliberately unfancy ground chuck, blanketed in American cheese, and swaddled in a squishy white bun. Burgers can be ordered by the single, the double, or the triple, and accompanied by classic fast-food fries and a chili-dog chaser. Hot dogs are deep-fried Brooklyn style, wrapped with bacon if you please, and there are grilled cheeses, egg creams, and milkshakes, too.

Recommended Dishes

Deep-fried bacon-wrapped hot dog with chili, $5; triple burger with cheese, $12
