The Burgers: The Big Apple’s best burgers are being served up a few blocks from each other in the East Village. At the gritty, no-attitude Black Iron Burger Shop, the house special, the Iron Horse, is made with two patties topped with grilled onions and horseradish cheddar. A few streets north at Back Forty, chef Peter Hoffman’s sleeker homage to down-home cooking, the grass-fed beef burger is paired with heritage bacon, farmhouse cheddar, spicy ketchup, and a big sour pickle.

Best Sides: Rosemary fries and a malted milkshake at Black Iron; salt cod hush puppies and crispy onion rings at Back Forty.
