5. Kobe Burger: Bistro 31
This Highland Park European-style bistro serves up some delectable French, Spanish, and Italian dishes, but their fancy burger is worth putting on a clean shirt and pants for. (Maybe even comb your hair.) Kobe beef is grilled medium rare and placed artfully on an olive oil roll then topped with a slab of crispy pork belly, Gruyère, caramelized onions, tomato jam and house-made pickles. Served with pomme frites. Ooh la la.
