Every food court worth its salt needs a great burger joint — a place that turns out satisfying sandwiches without a lot of fuss — and that's what Avanti has in American Grind. The team that runs the Way Back is the force behind American Grind, and it looked to 1950s-era drive-in burger joints for inspiration. Themenu is small but ticks all the boxes: burger, cheeseburger, fries, a few gussied-up sandwiches boasting toppings like Tender Belly bacon and jalapeño cream cheese, and a fantastic vegan burger we named 2017's Best Veggie Burger. Vegetarians will especially appreciate the three years of R&D that went into the latter, though the earthy blend of beets, carrots, sweet potato, chickpeas and chickpea flour can seduce the most bloodthirsty carnivore as well.
