Comment on Elevation Burger by AD.

Since this has gone to a discussion on burgers worth traveling for, I will chime in with the Burger Joint in NYC. They are not only worth traveling for, but should be the standard by which all others are measured.

Mexican Junk Food: ConeInn Pizza
Amazing. Reminded me of the first time I read about these:

Chocolate Moxie Whoopie Pies with Allen’s Coffee Brandy Buttercream
I went into a small corner store/agency liquor store one time where they kept $100 bottles of scotch on the floor but the Allen’s Coffee brandy behind the counter. I have never been able to explain why this made sense to anyone who grew up outside of Maine.

Ham Italian (Rusty’s Grocery)
When I am feeling especially homesick for Maine I go to Subway and ask for an ersatz Ham Italian. Its not especially great, but try getting anything even remotely close to it outside of Maine. Soulless it may be, but even Subway can have its occasional merits.

The Geno’s Italian (Mike’s Rock Deli)
Big Meat Hammer was the best (and only) old school punk band around when I was a teenager in the 90s. I am happy to see Jordan et al. memorialized in a sandwich. I remember those shows fondly. RIP Zootz.
