The other evening, while on our way to the Penthouse Executive Club to toast the launch of Inocente tequila — a triple-distilled brand that comes in a perfumelike bottle in order to appeal to women (and strippers?) — we caught a glimpse of something utterly tantalizing: the newly unveiled Five-Napkin Burger at 630 Ninth Avenue, at 45th Street! Life With Food and Drink also noticed that the plywood came down on the place a couple of days ago and has the first murky interior shots. According to Juli B, this one comes from Simon Oren, who has a “five-napkin burger” on the menu at Nice Matin: “Their specialty? Supersize burgers with what will no doubt be some mighty good-tasting fries.” Ah, if only we had that option after the tequila flowed.
