— Brooks Headley's wildly popular, ultra-tiny, two-star vegetarian restaurant Superiority Burger is now offering delivery via Caviar. The online menu includes the much-heralded veggie burger and burnt broccoli salad, as well as the Superiority Wrap, Sloppy Dave, and Superiority Boat. The restaurant is closed today, but the menu should be available again for delivery tomorrow.
