Plywood Special Report: Father's Office II

Looks like lovers of all things burger and beer will have a large bar to belly up to at the new Father's Office taking root at the Helms Bakery building next to H.D. Buttercup. These renderings were found on the Form Environment Research Studio website, the same design company responsible for Zen Zoo Tea in Beverly Hills, and the new Thompson Hotel. This isn't the first you've heard of the new FO, nor will it be the last. A few months ago we chatted with owner Sang Yoon who told us that, yes, the burger will still be on the menu, but expect a lot more. He sounds so over that burger actually, but says he'd "be lynched" if he ever stopped serving it. Agreed. We enjoyed his guest cheffing at Bin 8945 in May, a reminder that, really, he's much more than that burger. Two things that won't change at the new FO: The strict no-reservations policy, just like the original in Santa Monica, and please, never EVER call it a restaurant. The space is much bigger with a patio out front, and hopefully everyone will play nice. When we talked in Feb., Sang was hoping for a July debut. Of course, that could've all changed by now, but start lining up anyway. UPDATE: It was too good to be true. Sang emailed to say that FO II will probably debut this fall.
