Another food that seems to humble and obvious to have earned "trend" status, the burger has really transformed itself from a simple diner staple into something that is so, so much more. Burgers started getting fancy once it became a trend for restaurants to open up about where they sourced their meat. Suddenly, we all knew what kind of Pat LaFrieda blend was used in our burgers, and standing on a 30-minute line at Shake Shack became a rite of passage. No longer would diners blink an eye to see a $20 burger on a menu, it became the norm. And, also, burgers are just plain delicious. They're juicy and fatty and you get to eat them with your hands. Burgers aren't going anywhere. But where should you indulge your burger love? I'm a sucker for the Dumont burger, it's thick patty is flavorful and the juices will run down your hands as you eat it. Get it with blue cheese and onion rings and you'll feel like you never need to eat again.
