I love the veggie burger at Southwest NY in the financial district - made with black beans, and served between corn cakes (like arepas). Best with sauteed mushrooms and a side of soft corn pudding or maduros. Yum.
I really like the vegetable burger at 5 Napkin Burger. It's made from portabello mushrooms and beets (and maybe other stuff). I know that sounds weird -- at least I thought it sounded weird first time I asked -- but it's really tasty. Be forewarned: it's huge and it's messy. But all in a good way! (It comes with fries, but I believe they'll sub salad or other stuff if you ask.)
I like the veggie burger at Stand quite a bit. I think it's even better than their normal burger, which is about slightly above average. And their sweet potato fries are the only ones that I've found at a restaurant are crispy.
The veggie burger at Film Center Cafe on 9th Ave. is one of my favorites. It's delicious, and comes with avocado, sprouts, and sweet potato fries.
