What is it with New York burger joints that don't open until darkness looms? Are they trying to imply that burgers are not to be eaten until late in the day? I'm in a burger-foraging mood today, and I would love to try the burger at either Royale, which A Hamburger Today's Lauren Krueger made sound so good, or the Stoned Crow, but neither opens until at least 4 p.m. Have certain New York burgers attained such a level of hipness that they cannot be consumed until the sun goes down? C'mon, people. This is ridiculous.
