Vegetarian wild mushroom burger at Cafe of Love
38 Main St, Mount Kisco
(914) 242-1002; www.cafeofloveny.com
Not only is this the most meaty-tasting veggie burger we’ve tried, but it even resembles a conventional burger and has a texture you can sink your teeth into (in genteel, farm-to-table restaurant style, of course). Its umami comes from a collage of local, seasonal mushrooms (such as oyster and shiitake) sautéed and blended with shallots, fresh-picked thyme, panko, and egg, topped with slow-cooked onion marmalade and served on a brioche bun.
