17. The Dram Shop
Address: 3319 9th St., Park Slope, Brooklyn
A frequent problem that arises during sandwich creation is distribution. How do you achieve excellence across the entire bread and meat experience? The Dram Shop, through carefully paid attention, has figured this out. With shredded lettuce, diced onions, and thinly-sliced, well-placed pickles, this burger strives for equality in each bite. And it succeeds; each mouthful miraculously containes every element. The thin patties recall a Big Mac, but in appearance only. McDonald's would have to sell their soul to Satan to get a burger this good. And did we mention those paper pickles? Again, the McDonald's shaking hands with the Big Red One comment applies.
