1. Colonie 127 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201 (Brooklyn Heights)

Colonie is an upscale but unpretentious neighborhood restaurant in Brooklyn Heights -- it's the kind of place you go when you feel like treating yourself to a quality dinner and don't want somewhere sceney. You know what we mean. The menu has a little bit of everything: oysters, kale salad, burrata, pasta, and one very fine burger topped with aged cheddar, a fried egg, bacon, and beet ketchup. There is, of course, brunch, where you'll find that damn good burger again, plus monkey bread, buttermilk pancakes, and eggs Benedict. The space is simple with exposed brick walls, wooden ceilings, and touches of greenery.

2. BFB on the Highline 55 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014 (Meatpacking)

FBF is a Meatpacking burger haven. From hand-crafted burgers (their Heisenburger is a 10oz custom blend of dry-aged ribeye and pork belly with crystallized onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and your choice of cheese...) to VIP fries (bacon salt!), they're holding down the fancy burger surge here in NYC.
