☞ EAT: Morningside Heights Gets New Burger Bar

We mentioned that the Tomo sushi space in Morningside Heights had some activity in the interior for the past couple of months and it turns out that a new restaurant indeed will arrive soon. The sidewalk sheds at 2850 Broadway and 111th Street boasted some brand new signs this past weekend, and it is apparent that Mel's Burger Bar will be taking over the spot. This should bode well for an area that is dense with college students and young families, and the 1 train on 110th Street is just at the corner. The deluxe burger joint fad is all over downtown, and East Harlem already has the amazing Joy Burger, so it will be a nice change to have something closer on the West Side. Photo by Ulysses
