A bizarre marriage in Hell's Kitchen

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the Pluck U on 10th between 47th and 48th had closed. Not surprising-- I'm not sure I had ever seen anybody buying food in the pretty depressing shop. But the story doesn't end there. Walking to work on 46th street the other day, I noticed that the newish and seemingly sketchy Best Burgers and Shakes had somehow adopted (absorbed? acquired) Pluck U. At least, there was a sign on their little porch pronouncing a "Grand Opening" of Pluck U at that location. Whaaa? Your guess is as good as mine.

Burgers and shakes... and wings?
