While some non-burger restaurants may be accused of trying too hard when they offer a genre-crossing hamburger, Mexican-cuisine maestro Rick Bayless clearly knows how to play to his strengths. Topolobampo’s acclaimed burger, available only at lunchtime, is a house-ground rib eye and short-rib patty on an artisan bun, topped with chorizo, melted cheddar, and roasted poblanos. For dessert, go for the Oaxacan Chocolate Sundae.
