From Our Editors
The fact that their eponymous menu items exist at opposite ends of the craving spectrum doesn't faze the chefs at Burgers & Cupcakes. Instead, they see it as a model for their very accommodating cooking philosophy. Chefs layer buns with eight styles of meat and vegetarian patties, as well as toppings such as goat cheese. beef chili, and grilled mushrooms. They can even part with the bun altogether and instead pair meat and fish patties with a towering salad or daily blue plate specials. For sweeter cravings, chefs create mini cupcakes in traditional flavor pairings. New York Magazine lauds the resulting cupcake varieties, saying they "stand out for their moistness and buttery, not-too-sweet icing." They can, however, still satisfy sweet teeth with flavors that range from the tart berry vanilla to the decadent mint chocolate chip or the once-thought-to-be-impossible chocolate on chocolate. Weekend brunch is also available with offerings of egg sandwiches, bottomless stacks of pancakes, and scrambled eggs with jalapeños, chorizo, and roasted tomatoes.
