This is my first time posting and I am very excited. I was finally inclined to post because last night I had a great experience at The Counter in Santa Monica. I have recently begun the Atkins program and last night I weas able to have a Burger in a Bowl built to my specs and it was wonderful. There are not any burger joints that i know of that you can build your own burger at. In addition, not many that you can also have a wonderful glass of wine at(Proyecto 4 Meritage). I highly recommend The Counter and am anxious to see what othe Chowhounders think. Go, try, enjoy.
