Dan Ross Leutwyler is the chef behind this tiny Bushwick sandwich shop, and considering his pedigree, it’s no surprise that his house-ground burger is mind-blowingly good. He has spent time in the kitchens of Roberta’s, Fatty ‘Cue and The Breslin, where he honed his ability to produce notable comfort food. The 6-oz. blend of chuck and cheek is made in-house, topped with American cheese and served on a toasted sesame bun. The secret ingredient is a sweet pickle relish that’s slathered on the bread, adding some nice acid to the mix. For dessert, order a slice of pie (from nearby Pies ‘n’ Thighs), and you should be golden.
