Sputnik is a quaint little burger spot offering big, juicy burgers and old-fashioned hot dogs and milk shakes. The menu is extremely focused: greasy burgers, boiled hot dogs, salty fries, milkshakes and beer, so you know exactly what you're getting into.

Housed in the corner spot of the former European gastropub, The Good Knight, Sputnik still has that intimate feel without feeling as dark or heavy. With the decor and menu, it feels akin to an old school, no-nonsense Brooklyn burger joint.

There's no breakfast at Sputnik, but it does stay open pretty late: until midnight every night.
