One could accuse us of star-kissing, due to its appearance on an episode of Man v. Food, but the Headless Horseman Burger at this no-pretense, jeans-and-T-shirt (especially a Yankees or Giants T-shirt) tavern is worthy of a special shout-out irrespective of TV notoriety. The 10-oz big boy of a burger has a cascade of cheddar that oozes between a brioche bun, with lettuce, tomato, and an earthy-smoky chipotle mayo. The bun just about holds it altogether — that is until you douse the whole operation with a heaping spoonful (or two) of accompanying house-made chili.
