Breakfast All Day

Breakfast All Day

Breakfast All Day
At B.A.D. Burger in New York City, the B.A.D. stands for "burgers/breakfast all day" -- a perk that's on the radar of many foodies. Open 24/7, this comfort-food joint serves up classic breakfast options (steak and eggs, anyone?), as well as vegan alternatives (such as shroom burgers), for cravings from dusk till dawn -- and beyond.

Tapas, antojitos, small plates -- call them what you will, but this trend isn't leaving the culinary scene anytime soon. Restaurants such as Oyamel, a Mexican eatery in Washington, DC, are giving patrons the opportunity to taste many different plates at once.

A burger can be so much more than fast food. With locations in Georgia and Alabama, Top Chef's Richard Blais's Flip Burger Boutique artfully crafts burgers with toppings such as pomegranate ketchup, seared foie gras and cucumber relish -- not all together, of course.
