Let's face it, a burger just makes us all happy. Ok, not vegetarians but this guide is NOT for them. This is for all the meat eaters who revel in a good old fashioned patty of meat stuffed between two pieces of bread (or ok, lettuce if you're attempting to make it healthier).
Fashion me a burger from here topped with applewood bacon, a quail egg, and those fries and I am golden. Top it with a spicy cocktail care of a sugar glazed chile and I am ready to meow ...
A surprising stop in Venice. The avocado fries full of texture and taste, jalapeno turkey meatball skewers, and the works burger are diet-ditch worthy.
Feed your carnivore: order the kobe burger with pork belly. Paired with fried pickles, an impressive selection of beer and wine and a menu that appeals to most anyone, this is sophisticated casual.
By far one of the more inventive Happy Hours in LA. Get the lobster mac, fried chicken liver, and order anything of the cocktail or wine/beer list.
While the food is consistently inconsistent, the bar is one you should see. Inside the beautiful Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, you can't help but feel an undefined sense of cool when you walk in. A good selection of gin and beer, wine, and ryes, you'll find what you need.
