Umami adds a Mindy Kaling burger

Keeping true to their tradition of celebrity-backed burgers, you can now enjoy a Mindy Kaling situation at all Umami Burgers nationwide. Apparently it's spicy! Oh, also $1 from each burger goes to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, says the Times.

Speaking of burgers ...

Apparently Hollywood's last remaining Juicy Burger has also bit the dust, just weeks after their Los Feliz location went belly up. Add on the recent loss of Lucky Devils, and apparently burgers ain't what they used to be.

Bouchon gets cheap for Labor Day

Thomas Keller's Beverly Hills restaurant is hoping you'll leave the cooking up to them, with deals like $2 all-weekend oysters and takeout fried chicken options for anyone looking to forego the grilling.

Fogo de Chão gets even cheaper

That's right, it's a FREE KIDS WEEKEND, Saturday through Monday, at all Fogo de Chão grills, including the Downtown location. Time to teach those young ones about the true meaning of Labor Day meat sweats.

No more 9 on Vine

Tipsters are saying that the 9 on Vine has closed quietly, after taking over and revamping the former M Bar space just a year prior. Long a variety show venue and strip mall haunt for Hollywood locals, the place seems to have shuffled away rather unceremoniously about a couple of weeks ago.

Club Tengo Hambre comes to L.A.

The roving Mexico-based dining tour group is expanding into Mexico's "second-largest city": Los Angeles. Club Tengo Hambre currently has tours in Mexico City, Tijuana, Ensenada, and Valle de Guadalupe.
