There is a poll in general topics about state laws regarding "undercooked" meats.
CA requires "fully cooked" animal proteins aka "beef charcoal" unless the person consuming knows and consents to something else.
I require that hamburgers be cooked rare or medium rare to be fit for human consumption. This also requires a place I can count on for top quality meat and always ordering the burger rare.
All of the following places prepare excellent rare to medium rare hamburgers:
The Office, Hotel Bel Air, Houstons, Chateau Marmont.
Anyone have other suggestions?
