Paul's Palace, East Village New York

Just read an NPR article by Chappy Hardy aka the "Man From Hunger". In searching for a good burger he came across "Paul's Palace". He concurs that this may be the best burger he's ever had in his life. The owner of the restaurant says the secret is having fresh chopped sirloin delivered everyday. The burgers sit under metal cups on the grill, so they stay juicy. He also say's it's a bargin and he measures bargins by the bite. His burger at Paul's was accompanied by a generous selection of fries and onion rings. It came to a total of $7.35 and 89 bites. Averaging out to $.08 per mouthful. Making it a rare Manhatten bargin.
That's what I call analizing a meal. Anyone else experienced "Paul's Palace"?

    I too asked this question here and since have heard from someone elsewhere that is was a "pretty good" burger but by far not the best or anywhere near his favorite burger in New York.

    I'm afraid that a burger requiring 89 bites would be larger than the table on which it is served (for me). The price is ok for a good 'urban' Burger but the evaluation criteria sounds like it is being consummed by gerbils.

    It's an awful burger - not enough grease and way too inconsistent grill men (sometimes too rare, cheese never really melted, cold buns, etc) Just across the street is a much better burger at, believe it or not, Veselka!

    Okay, so I checked out Pauls on the way home Friday. First off, top shelf decor, just perfect for a burger joint (in fact Paul's buisness card says "da burger joint"). Big enough menu, a bunch of different choices, and not just burgers. I chose the bleucheese burger. Mistake. The burger was certainly large, but except for the cheese, tasteless. Surprisingly they use Wonder Bread buns, which are fine but don't really hold up under the stress of a 1/2 pound burger. Should have gotten it toasted. French Fries were fine, but when I asked if I could order half fries and half onion rings,the counter guy went into some deal about the deluxe or something. He was pleasant enough; all the customers seemed happy but the burger was just blah. Perhaps there was not enough fat in the chopped meat. It looked kind of lean, almost like turkey (they do offer turkey burgers). I asked the guy what kind of hotdogs they served and he said "some restaurant kind they're good". Okay ! Thanks for the input. Anyway a decent experience. I may go again to see if it was an off day because I would say the place has huge potential.Oh, one more thing...the guy asked me how I wnted my burger done..well or medium. Hmmmm.
