What's going on at Black Iron Burger on 5th Street?

The Black Iron Burger at 540 E. Fifth St. near Avenue B is entering its fifth month of closure for renovations... and some regulars are wondering if it might reopen at all.

Locals haven't noticed much activity inside the space. And now, there's a Con Ed notice affixed to the front door.

"Gas shutoff notices aren’t ever good news during 'renovations,'" wrote Brian Van, who shared the photo in this post.

While this location remains on the Black Iron Burger website (along with new outposts coming soon to West 32nd Street, West 54th Street and in Chicago), the phone is no longer in service. We reached out to them via email about the status here. Will update if/when we hear back.

The East Village location was the first of the Black Iron Burgers, opening in 2008 ... with new ownership taking over in 2013.

In the summer of 2018, TripAdvisor rated Black Iron as serving the best burger in New York State.
