Meat master and all-around chef Adam Perry Lang is approaching his one-year anniversary at APL Restaurant, the upscale steakhouse in the heart of Hollywood. Lang seems to be developing a habit of introducing something new every few months, and usually from his subterranean dry-aging meat room. Starting this month, Lang will serve a 150-day aged burger for $18.
Dubbed simply ‘the burger,’ Lang uses 150 plus day dry-aged beef, American cheese, white onion, pickles, and mustard aioli on a potato bun. “It is a classic burger, not to be confused with a smash burger that’s cooked on our steakhouse broiler,” says Lang. “I never really look at great preparations and great food as a trend, I just focus on making things great and how I think they are best to shine.”
The burger is available now, though it’s worth noting that Lang keeps a limited quality available each night until it sells out. APL Restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sundays from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
