Taste Testing Patra's Burgers, Prizzi's To Open in Burbank, Chipotle Goes Extra Local, More!

GLASSELL PARK— A Hamburger Today files thinkage on the state of Patra's Burgers post Jamie Oliver's healthy overhaul. Unfortunately, the original cheeseburger falls short due to a bland, thin patty, meanwhile Oliver's Revolution Burger doesn't fit the traditional burger flavor profile, but is still "very good." However, the burger that takes the cake is a version of the original cheeseburger with an upgraded Angus patty. Overall, "Patra's seems to have embraced their makeover while not losing a connection to their fast food roots. [AHT]

BURBANK— While Greg Morris (The Oaks, Oakfire Pizza) snapped up the Prizzi's space on Franklin, owners of the Italian restaurant decided to relocate Prizzi's to 3821 W. Riverside Dr in Burbank. The 3,500 square foot restaurant will seat about 100 diners, and feature a dining room, bar, private dining room, and patio. [EaterWire]
