I finally made it to Superiority Burger, and I'll definitely be going back. It's only open Wed–Mon from 6 to 10pm, and there is always a line. Always. Even on a Wednesday night after work, when I went. But the line moves quickly, so you won't be waiting long, and the food comes out fast. I saw Brooks Headley, the owner and also pastry chef at Del Posto, behind the counter working hard with his staff. The downside is that there is little to no seating, you should prepare a place elsewhere to eat your food, which can be a bit of a bother in the winter. But the food is great. All vegetarian and vegan burgers if you want. The burgers are small, so most people order two for a meal. I got a burger and a side of a white potato with cardamom caper sauce and labneh, and it was DELICIOUS. I devoured that potato. Great for a snack while you're waiting for a table at another restaurant nearby or for a small dinner.
