From the ravenous mind of owner Dan Ross-Leutwyler, whose bonafides include time at Roberta's, Fatty 'Cue, and The Breslin, FLB is a hidden gem off the Dekalb L stop. This tiny, slender spot seats guests side by side along one wall and in the warmer months has a great little back patio illuminated by Christmas lights at night. This place is best known for its $10 burger with chopped pickles, onions, and special sauce (it's charred miso aioli, shhh) on a toasted sesame bun. The pillowy, beer-battered broccoli is equally delicious, as is the palace fried chicken on a roll. Stop by for brunch to savor unique menu items like the Spicy Crab Cake Omelet and the Morning Beer, which is house-made kombucha with Founders IPA.
