Update on Rachael Ray's Burger Joint

The New York Post recently talked to Rachael Ray about the Burger Bash she hosted at the New York City Wine & Food Festival. Sixteen contestants vied for the title of best burger.

While that's all well and good, the interesting part of the article is a little update on Rachael's plans to open a burger join in NYC. The burger she mentioned is the one pictured at left, which I guess I have to try now that I know she thinks its her best one. Here's what Rach said about her future restaurant:

Ray knows a thing or two about burgers. In addition to offering countless recipes for home cooks (she calls her Seven-Layer Slider her "piéce de résistance"), the self-described "burger freak" plans to open a hamburger joint in Midtown next year.

"I'm going for a '60s back-in-the-day Rat Pack-y kind of hangout, and I want the bar to be really central [and] the burgers to become a very social thing," says Ray. "I want people to come to the bar to see beautiful proper martinis being made and to enjoy some sliders while they're doing business or sit in the dining room and have fine dining in ground form."
