I am pleased to announce that I saw a sign on the corner of Sunset and Vine announcing the upcoming opening of BLT Burgers.
This is a necessary addition to the neighborhood, as you would currently need to walk 100 feet east to get a burger at either Magnolia or the Bowery. Or you might be forced to cross the street and go to Café Was or Hungry Cat… or the Waffle. So in that intersection, this will only be the 6th place you can get a burger.
But, you say, the other places are not NAMED “Burgers.” Ahhh, you are right. For that, you would need to go a block north to Molly’s Burgers, or another block to Sandy’s Burgers. You may also go a block west to Umami Burgers, or a block north of that to Juicy Burgers.
But that seems like a dearth of places to get a burger, you say. Aren’t there any others within, say a half mile? Well, yes there are:
The Blue Palms Brewhouse
Jack in the Box
So this will only be the 18th place within a half mile to get a burger; and only the fifth in the same half mile to have “Burgers” in its name. And most importantly, this will be the first one at the exact corner of Sunset and Vine.
So next time we go to the ArcLight, we can reflect on the many burger choices we have, including the NEW burger place: BLT Burgers.
