The folks behind P.J. Clarke's have opened a spinoff burger joint, the first of several that will hit Midtown in the coming months. Clarke's is serving up locally sourced beef that hails from a Pennsylvania ranch, which comes topped on custom-made rolls from a private Italian bakery. Toppings include smoked bacon, farmer's gouda, crispy shallots, good ol' American cheese, and the brand's signature mayonnaise. If it's a hot dog you want, you can choose from four custom-blend varieties, including an exotic Bánh Mì Dog with Sriracha mayo (so trendy!). Fries and ice-cream cups round out the menu, which you can check out ahead.
Clarke's Standard, 646 Lexington Ave., at 54th St., 212.838.6000
