Lower East Side sandwich shop Black Tree took its farm-to-table concept to the extreme in 2016 by transforming itself into a sustainably sourced, "ethically harvested" restaurant. Instead of sandwiches, the menu features oysters, ceviche, pâté, and various meat plates -- all of which are made with ingredients that are grown and raised ethically. Don't let the fact that Raw Material's ingredients are produced with a good-for-humankind mentality trick you into thinking that the food is healthy though. The spot is known for its Burger Bomb, a off-menu cheeseburger made with a hollowed-out top bun that's filled with a house cheese sauce of aged cheddar, cream, and cheese.
