Dumbo Pigalle

Dumbo (Paris)

The most Instagrammed burger of the year can be found inside this tiny space with unfinished, whitewashed walls that’s run by Charles Ganem and Samuel Nataf and serves a single product. Their secret? The smash burger, made on an ultra-tender potato bun sandwiched around a grilled patty (so smashed you might think an elephant had stepped on it!) with ketchup/mustard, homemade pickles and American cheese, paired with some straightforward double-fried fries. One you’ve taken your photos and wolfed it down, please keep moving, because there’s a line out the door jostling to get a table! FYI: the name wasn’t inspired by flying elephant, but rather the cool Brooklyn neighborhood called D.U.M.B.O. – or Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. // A.A.

FEELING THIRSTY? Moroccan Casablanca beer (€4 for 330 ml) or a classic born in the USA cola (€2 for 330 ml).

PRICE: Burgers €9, fries €3.
