Los Angeles Because you've already tried all of LA's best burgers (and also all the under-the-radar-est burgers), why not try five of its NEWEST burgers? Here's a quintet of burgs worth the stomach space.

Slater's 50/50

Slater’s 50/50: The name may be 50/50, but there’s a 100/0 chance you’re gonna want their April burg of the month: the Gyro Burger. Picture seasoned Brandt Beef, lamb/beef gyro, tomato, naked red onion, feta cheese & cucumbers, smothered with a tzatziki-style Greek yogurt sauce. They’ve also got a list of 100+ beers -- go during happy hour and they’re just $3.50. Continue Reading

Five Leaves

Chapter Restaurant (Ace Hotel): Who doesn’t love a burger that’s straight outta Brooklyn? Oh, right. Either way, the Ace’s trendy LA Chapter is headed by the same peeps from Brooklyn’s Five Leaves restaurant, and they’ve got an eponymous burger to show for it. Get a taste of what they’re all about with the too-big-to-be-true Five Leaves Burger, topped with a sunny-side-up egg, harissa mayo, grilled pineapple, and pickled beets.

Justice Urban Tavern

Justice Urban Tavern: If you haven’t been to the new Justice Urban Tavern in Little Tokyo yet, get your buns over to this gastropub. Its signature Barrister Burger is served up simple on a brioche bun with ‘Merican cheese, butter lettuce, roasted tomato, and house-made pickles. For your side: try the mac 'n cheese with crushed BBQ potato chips, or the hand-cut fries with spiced ketchup. Or... both.

Belcampo Meat Co.

Belcampo Meat Co.: Can you handle yet another craveable option in Downtown’s Grand Central Market? We think you can. Among the many meaty options on this organic butchery’s menu, you’ll find the “Belcampo Burger” -- a 5.5oz, dry-aged & grass-fed beef patty topped with cheddar and caramelized onions.


Tapenade: There’s a new chef in town at Tapenade, and he comes with burgers blazing. Tri Nguyen’s new Tapenade burger features a New York steak blend with manchego cheese, sun-dried tomato tapenade, lemon aioli, and arugula.

50/50 is a great burger joint doling out a burger of the month -- often cardiac arreset-inducing and SUPER delicious. In addition to their delicious burger selection, we are huge fans of their wide selection of beers on tap. This is the perfect place to sit back, relax, and watch the game.

3. Ace Hotel Los Angeles 933 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015 (Downtown)

Designed into the renovated and historic United Artists building, this hotel incorporates elements of its glorious past into a minimalist, art deco-inspired finish. Use one of the minimalist rooms at this hipster haven (located in the grand old former United Artists building) as a home base for a weekend living it up Downtown. Springing for one of the larger rooms either gets the use of a turntable with records chosen by the folks at Amoeba or an acoustic Martin guitar. (Sadly, you'll have to leave it all behind when you check out.)

4. Belcampo Meat Company 317 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (Downtown)

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.
