Pastrami is the new bacon, at least according to Todd Ginsberg, who showers chunks of it on top of fries soaked in gravy, stuffs it between soft bread, and crowns his burger with it. Decidedly more complicated than his Bocado burger, the dinner burger is a labor of Gruyère cheese, caramelized onions, and Russian dressing. We love how it all oozes out, but the wedge of pastrami steals too much of the show for our taste. $14 (burger and fries). 1540 Avenue Place, thegeneralmuir.com
