What's the best bun for burgers?

Dont you dare say sesame seed bun.

The nice thing about burgers getting the upscale treatment is that we've started to put the same level of thought into the bun as the burger that resides within. Bon Appetit editor-in-chief Adam Rapoport got Twitters' buttons aflutter Sunday night when he suggested that the brioche bun for burgers was one of the worst food trends of the last 20 years. The early comments on Bon Appetit's site suggest an onion and cheese roll as an alternative. Is such a delightful-sounding bun even available on the hardpan of KC?

In Kansas City, you're as likely to encounter Farm to Market pretzel bread as your standard white or wheat bun. And an important note before we turn over this conversation to you, any manner of toast, and that includes Texas toast, means you're not eating a burger, you're eating a patty melt. That said, what's the best bun for burgers, and who has it on their menu?
