Traditional schnitzels with Austrian potato salad and braised sauerkraut have us singing “Danke Schoen.”

Enough about the (rightfully) hyped falafel. Middle Eastern-inspired smoothies (try pear/mint/lemon) are just the fix we’re looking for. It’s TelAvivacious.

The Morris Truck (401-440-8910, @morristruck, or morrisgrilledcheese.com).

Milk Truck (@milktrucknyc or milktruckgrilledcheese.com).
It’s all in the name: simple, classic burgers with mix-and-match options for bun (brioche, sesame), cheese (brie, cheddar), and toppings (onion jam, bacon). Don’t forget the Belgian fries with aioli.
Frites ’n’ Meats (917-292-9226, @fritesnmeats, or fritesnmeats.com).
