Eben Freeman and Michael White's cocktail-heavy supper club The Butterfly has maybe the best patty melt ever: Dry-aged, steaky, white label meat topped with caramelized onions, and sandwiched between rye that's crisped only on the outside to achieve maximum goo factor with the American on top and the gruyere on bottom.

Umami's Manly Burger is kind of like a bacon cheeseburger topped with onion rings, only much more aggressive. The cheese is beer cheddar processed in house, the bacon is actually bacon lardons (which lay somewhere in between pork belly and bacon), and the onion rings are battered in malt liquor -- suck it, all burgers not made with 40s.
