|Built burgers now open|
Smashburger can't be stopped. Look for the newest location to open on Wednesday (April 3) in Redondo Beach, which joins Culver City and Thousand Oaks. The chain is known for Angus beef burgers that are smashed on the grill and topped with just about anything, including crispy wontons, fried egg, cilantro, cucumber, lettuce, tomato and ginger dressing that make up the LA-ode Fusion Burger, as well as chicken sandwiches, fries, shakes, the works (409 N. Pacific Coast Highway).
And Israel-based Burgerim debuted in the former O Burger space in West Hollywood last week, bringing smaller-sized burgers and Mediterranean flair to Kobe beef, lamb and ahi tuna patties. Sides include Moroccan-dusted onion rings, quinoa salad and beignets for dessert (8593 Santa Monica Blvd.; 310-854-0234). [Eater]
