Hojoko: Near Fenway at 1271 Boylston Street. “It’s a Japanese place,” says Edelman, “but they have an insane burger.”

Craigie’s on Main: Near MIT at 853 Main Street. Edelman tells Bloomberg this is “the one I always go to.”

Toro: Near Northeastern University at 1704 Washington Street. Edelman recommends the sliders here.

JM Curley’s: Near the Boston Commons at 21 Temple Place. Edelman likes the smaller 5-oz Griddle Burger at this restaurant as a “midnight snack”, per Bloomberg.
