Today's burger face-off? Check below. 

Morton's: The oversized (12 ounce!) lunchtime patty at this chain of big-spending steakhouses is made from prime sirloin which gets a kick from tomato juice.

Smith and Wollensky: The DC outlet of this steakhouse serves a two-napkin 8 oz. burger topped with cheddar and tomato/jalapeno relish.
