Maybe you heard one of the renovated Palace Station’s new restaurants is another burger joint. You heard wrong. B.B.D.’s is a big, comfortable restaurant with a serious bar and serious food. It’s only been open for a couple of weeks, and it’s already one of the most exciting new destinations in the city, mostly because chef Ralph Perrazzo, who opened the original B.B.D.’s on New York’s Long Island five years ago, has worked in some serious kitchens in Vegas (Bradley Ogden) and Manhattan (Jean-Georges) and is all about making everything from scratch from fresh ingredients.

Yeah, there are burgers here—Perrazzo does the three types of burgers we all crave: steakhouse-style ($19), with a thick patty grilled over wood and charcoal topped with your faves; griddled burgers ($9-$14) with thin patties cooked quickly for a crispy brown crust; and steamed burgers (think White Castle) with onions and pickles ($8-$13). But you have to make it past bacon and pretzel-crusted mac and cheese ($10), Chicago dog sliders ($12), lamb gyro tacos ($13) and the ramen of the day (currently Long Island duck ramen with smoked pork and soy-cured egg, $18) before you even begin to choose your own burger adventure. Good luck.

B.B.D.'S Palace Station, 702-221-6513. Daily, noon-midnight.
