2018 Best Burger

Craigie on Main

Often imitated, never duplicated: In the years since Craigie’s burger became the hottest thing between two buns, other restaurants have tried to replicate the high-quality, limited-quantity formula. And yet the 18 burgers Craigie churns out each night are still the most coveted in town, thanks to an aggressively rich, juicy blend of beef cuts and bone marrow that manages to be way too much and just right all at once. Good news for all you FOMO-racked non-meat eaters: This year chef Tony Maws debuted an umami-packed veggie version.
