Last week in our new series MUG Under $21, we featured Erica Weiner's Sparrow Earrings (which a reader points out are actually swallow earrings). Today, ground meat. Since extravagant showboaters like DB Bistro Moderne's $32 hamburger are on the back burner these days, here's a way to enjoy a sensational burger at a more down-to-earth price. Get Lobel's, 1096 Mad [82nd/83rd] 212.737.1372, ground beef—a mix of USDA prime and American Wagyu ground chuck, sirloin, and tenderloin. Lobel's meats are famously good and famously expensive.
