Burger Lounge opens its second location in Los Angeles - the first opened in West Hollywood last year - next week (July 25). The certified green restaurant is known for its use of sustainable ingredients, including grass-fed beef, free-range turkey and wild salmon. Proceeds from sales on July 25-27 will go to the John Muir High School’s CSA and school garden program (281 S. Beverly Dr.; 310-385-0898).
Umami Burger's location at The Grove will open in the next couple of weeks, definitely by August 1 say reps. The space - two floors and a large patio - is eco-conscious, from the reclaimed wood and bamboo to solar panels. It's the largest of all the Umami's so far (175 seats!), and will serve as the flagship for the company. The restaurant is located on The Grove Drive, just outisde of the parking structure across from Whisper Lounge.
