This Bay Area transplant is doing the sustainable meat thing and doing it well. As with a number of vendors in Grand Central Market, Belcampo combines retail and restaurant in one. Next to a butcher case full of cuts that are common (New York steaks) and others that are less so (beef heart and tongue), there’s a small counter where you should order a burger. The Fast Burger is the Belcampo take on a Shake Shack/In-N-Out-style burger, and with perfectly seasoned and crispy patties, does a good job of showing those big deal burgers who’s boss.
