8. Belcampo Meat Company 317 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013

The Grand Central Market outpost of Belcampo Meat Co. offers the same butcher shop-restaurant set-up as the rest of the chain's California outposts, just in a more confined space. Aside from cuts of pasture-raised, sustainable beef, pork, and other meats, this location serves dishes like the signature Belcampo burger, featuring a thick patty sandwiched on a toasted brioche bun with Cheddar, caramelized onions, and house sauce. A few counter seats make up the dining area, so most people take their orders to go.
