Have you noticed the tasteful renovation happening at the northwest corner of Melrose and Western lately? The once lowly-looking building is getting a major steel, brick, and tall glass window upgrade, and now it appears it’s even getting a new tenant: Burgerim, the mini-burger brand with ties to Israel.
If the name sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because the international company actually already had one dalliance with the City of Angels, opening up a small shop in West Hollywood in 2013. The results were less than stellar, however, leading to their storefront getting taken over by a Vietnamese sandwich concept just about one year later.
And yet it seems as though they’re suddenly back. The below photo shows the wrapping for the inbound burger brand, though little has been said publicly about the expansion online. The company’s website doesn’t list Hollywood as an upcoming location (though it does have Encino and Beverly Hills in play), and the company’s U.S.-based Facebook page hasn’t updated since 2013.
Eventually though it seems you may just be able to snag a few mini-burgers (not sliders), salads, or chicken wings from the corner address. Considering the length of the build-out at there so far, expect a late summer arrival at the earliest.
