Holy crap, this late-night patty melt looks awesome

Williamsburg neighborhood favorite Extra Fancy (which frankly should already be on your late-night radar) has seriously upped its late-night game with the addition of a simple patty melt that you can GET TOTALLY CRAZY WITH, thanks to add-ons like more patties, lobster, and fried clams.

That means craziness like the guy pictured at the very beginning of this story -- with an additional quad of patties (so, five total) and "Southern-style" treatment, aka it's dripping with creamy, melty pimento cheese. Or you could do this slightly less-patty melt with way more sunny-side-up egg and bacon.

Or, if you're an American hero, you'll do this: two patties topped off with the Conche Out add-on (a pile of fried surf clam strips) and the Surf & Turf option, because -- let's be honest -- lobster on top of your burger is going to sound pretty damn good once 2am (or any time really) rolls around.
