After three years of business, it has become challenging to find a section of Los Angeles devoid of a nearby Umami Burger. And then there's Beverly Hills. No Umami there. Which might partly explain why Burger Lounge, the San Diego-based eco-friendly burger chain, has decided to plant its second LA flag (8th overall) in the 90212. Burgers are now breaking in to Beverly Hills.
Slated to open mid-June, Burger Lounge stands in for the defunct SanSai Japanese Grill on Beverly Drive at Gregory Way, 900 square feet total, an open kitchen, 18 seats inside and 14 on the patio. As it so goes with chains, the menu stays true to all other locations save for the addition of a new Organic Quinoa Salad in place of the Baby Romaine Salad (will be added to other locations this summer).
