Popular York Boulevard beef and bun spot Burgerlords has closed after nearly 18 months of service. The Highland Park takeaway window attached to the Hi Hat bar and music venue is now down one of its primary tenants, but will keep on morning option Belle’s Bagels.
The news of the shutter came suddenly, with the Burgerlords brother team of Fred and Max Guerrero announcing the demise on Instagram well after last call. Their post does not elaborate on the decision behind the closure, only to say that:
After much debate, we’ve decided to move on and focus our energy on new opportunities.
TimeOut LA was the first to report on the shutter. They also note the ongoing changes to Burgerlords over all, having brought on former Free Range LA chef Jesse Furman to lead the culinary side of things — including the addition of vegan tofu nuggets and milkshakes. Both remain available at the original Burgerlords in Chinatown, which remains open. As for the other opportunities in question for the team right now, Eater reached out but so far hasn’t heard back.
