Del Posto pastry chef Brooks Headley is getting ready to thrust open the doors to Superiority Burger, arguably the most anticipated veggie burger restaurant in the history of New York City or the rest of the world for that matter. Although the chef has yet to publicly acknowledge that the restaurant is opening soon in the old Dirt Candy space on Ninth Street, its name is now listed on the DOH website, and food-world luminaries attended preview dinners in the space earlier this week.
The veggie burger train is about to leave plywood station. The only question is whether you want to hop on board that beautiful green locomotive, or hitchhike your way to flavor mountain, like a chump.
