The tiny Soho restaurant calls to mind the kind of places that used to be all over the city, or at least below 14th Street: fifteen seats, a lone counter, two staffers, no attitude. The menu is burgers (sourced from from Pat LaFrieda, except for the excellent falafel burger, pictured below), a few meaty salads, a few sides, overloaded milkshakes that have gone viral (which explains the line), and many craft beers. Check out the graffiti-covered restroom, with a marker for you to weigh in with.
