The clever folks at Eater know that the idea of meat on a hot grill drives carnivores crazy. Thus, they’re tormenting readers with "Burger Week," a patty-obsessed package of glorious photos and tales about hamburgers.
More importantly, they have "commissioned" limited-edition burgers at five of their favorite burger-less restaurants: Chinatown Brasserie will be serving up a duck burger topped with a crispy slice of Peking duck for $18, Maialino will feature a seven-ounce beef burger "heavy on the brisket" with house-cured bacon, and Má Pêche will have a chuck-and-short-rib burger slathered with lemongrass-chile butter for $16. SHO Shaun Hergatt and Kin Shop are also in on the act, so get, um, hoofing to whichever eatery sounds most delicious. The specials are available at lunch, and more information can be found here.
