Hamptons Hamburgers

    gourmet hamburgerReading the NYT article this morning on Parisians' new obsession with burgers has got me a) drooling, and b) wondering where's best round here to do something about it.

    I know Rachelle loves the Surf Lodge's egg-topped version, and The Palm does a fantastic broiled sirloin one, but I figure, as burgers are the consumate summer food and the Hamptons are, right now at least, a consumate summer getaway, that there must be myriad other options. I'm not so interested in the haute burger -the city has those in abundance. What I'm looking for is simplicity and highest quality ingredients, cooked medium rare. Suggestions?
