Yet another early review for SIV as she bites into Short Order, just two and a half months in. Sher decides The Original Farmers Market burger joint is a one and a half star addition to the block, though not every burger lives up to the Nancy Silverton standard:
Great name, great concept: a burger joint with frills, including a full bar, fresh-baked cookies, a retro soundtrack and, upstairs, a sweet little outdoor terrace.
Not everything deserves a rave, not even every burger, but, all in all, Short Order is a fine addition to the sprawling complex at Fairfax and 3rd...Remember, it's a simple restaurant — what burger place isn't? — that mostly does what it's supposed to do: well-executed comfort food for a reasonable price... Other than the quite terrific backyard burger, burgers can be hit and miss...SIV feels that Ida's Old School Burger is on the dry side, and she says that the signature Short Order Burger could be her least favorite. However, before signing out, she describes Short Order as "one classy burger joint." [LAT]
