THIS MUST BE THE PLACE is a series of short films from Lost & Found Films that explore the idea of home, or places that function as home — workplaces, hang out spots, etc. The creators set out to figure out what makes them, how they represent us, why we need them. This particular film profiles Prime Burger Restaurant, in Midtown Manhattan.
For many of the guys that work here, the restaurant is like a second home — some of them have been slinging burgers, making shakes and waiting on customers at this location for decades. Opened in 1938, the place hasn't been altered since the early '60s, and it looks all the better for it. Here the waiters and workers of Prime Burger discuss their views on their chosen profession and the unique nature of the place itself.
