Silver Lake is quickly becoming one of LA’s more burger-centric neighborhoods, thanks to Burgerdaddy pop-ups at Ma’am Sir, the bustling Burgers Never Say Die restaurant, and, now, thanks to Goldburger on Sunset.
The limited-run Goldburger pop-up takes over for the closed Hache in Silver Lake, basically right across the street from Night + Market Song — and not far from the upcoming modern diner All Day Baby, which should boast its own prominent patty melt soon enough. The first day of service for the award-winning pop-up, which won this summer’s Los Angeles Food & Wine Epic Burger Throwdown, is tomorrow.
Fans of Goldburger will know owner Allen Yelent from a variety of coffee and bar pop-ups across the city, including days at Smorgasburg in Downtown. For this new run, Yelent tells Eater that the plan is to stick mostly to the patio portion of the former Hache, offering weekend only hours to start (Saturday noon to 10 p.m., Sunday noon to 7 p.m.) with a tight collection of burgers and fries on offer. The opening menu is below.
It’s important to note that Goldburger isn’t going fully permanent at the space, though the plan is to grow into weekday hours and to continue to do outside pop-ups as well. The Hache address is eventually slated for redevelopment, so don’t be surprised to see Goldburger gone after half a year. That’s why the tag line for this run is simple: For a Limited Time Only.
