Burger Lounge Coming to Larchmont Blvd.

Burger Lounge Larchmont

Burger Lounge, the “original grass-fed burger” will be moving into the 217 N Larchmont location where Hamburger Hamlet, and prior to that the Avocado Grill, made attempts at bringing ‘up-scale’ fast food to Larchmont Boulevard. Let’s hope  the Burger Lounge reinvents the cold, noisy and less-than-charming space and turns it into a more palatable location for a good burger.

With its origins in La Jolla starting in 2007, Burger Lounge has built its reputation on ‘sustainable’ healthy ingredients, from burgers to salads (yawn – it seems this ‘comfort’ bistro food is prevalent everywhere these days.) “We support cows eating grass, corn is for the birds,” the Burger Lounge website states.

The Burger Lounge locations in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and West Hollywood all feature outdoor seating which is expected to be a component of their new Larchmont location just north of the Larchmont parking lot. The chain also operates eight venues in the San Diego area. The limited menu includes a line of burgers (including an “elk burger”) and salads, sides of onion rings and fries, shakes, a featured brownie dessert, and craft beer and wine (pending their license of course.)

Opening date for the Burger Lounge is not yet determined, but expect to see some activity in the location soon.

No word yet on whether Canto Diem, the medical marijuana dispensary that leased  a space one floor above, will be opening or not. According to Renee Weitzer, Chief of Land Use Planning for CD4, Councilman Tom LaBonge’s office, there is no news. “I do not have any further information on the pot shop,” she told the Buzz last week.
