mchale’s closed

mchale’s is gone forever.

it had the best burger in new york, i thought. i blogged about it previously, and have raved about it to many, many friends.

my work group had set a calendar date for today to go have one last lunch. last time i was there, in mid-december, the waitress told us that they’d be open through the end of january.

but no lunch for us today. last night was last call for mchale’s.

along with the second avenue deli, cbgb’s, astray cafe, and so many others, another landmark lost to the greed of new york developers.

grrrrrrr.
