CHOW wades into shark-infested waters of perfection: the burger. Josh Ozersky, author of The Hamburger: A History and former editor of New York magazine’s Grub Street blog (he’s now editor of The Feedbag blog), confers with Gail Simmons of Top Chef and Food & Wine magazine. For Ozersky, it’s the burger at Veselka in New York.
