The upscale burger officially happened in the 1990s with Chef Daniel Boulud’s db Burger of short rib and foie gras. Finally, another step forward: the inclusion of Superiority Burger on The James Beard Foundation’s list of semi-finalists for Best New Restaurant. A burger, and a veggie burger at that. The Superiority Burger patty is a mashup of beans, nuts and grain (with Muenster cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomato and a dill pickle). It helps that the restaurant is down the street — figuratively — from the Beard Foundation itself.
