Best Absurdly Upscale Burger (2008)

DB BISTRO

It used to be that Patroon served the most expensive burger in town, and at $23, it failed to justify the price. Now along comes Daniel Boulud, who applies his playful artistic sensibilities to America's favorite meal. With a well-browned exterior, and a rare interior of exemplary beef, the burger ($28) at DB BISTRO is further stuffed with foie gras and shredded short ribs. Hitting this mother lode is like winning the lottery.
