(inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel)
The Patty: The price ($12.95 plain) borders on absurd, but the melt-in-your-mouth Kobe beef is profound.
Toppings: Not DIY. Our menu suggestion: Kobe Bacon Bleu with Maytag blue, caramelized onions and garlic aioli.
Turkey: Unashamed of its turkey-ness. Blended with rosemary; topped with white cheddar, avocado and arugula.
Veggie: House-made with beets, paprika and roasted red peppers. It has a firm consistency and a nice spiciness.
Dogs: Called the Spicy Lucky Dog for a reason; comes in a snappy natural casing. Chili is a little pat.
Buns: Brioche that’s a little fluffier and softer than the ones down the street.
Fries: Dark, caramelized and crisp outside, soft inside. For those who prefer heavily seasoned fries.
Beer/wine: A nice list of wines by the glass, but the 25 microbrews (including rarely seen Belgians) are standout.
The Patty: Thick and juicy, though ours came out closer to medium than the medium-rare we ordered.
Toppings: Artisanal cheeses and enough sauces to create something really awful if you’re not as smart as you think.
Turkey: Nicely charred and juicy enough to be mistaken for beef; may be better than the real thing here.
Veggie: None, though you could probably construct something tasty with all the cheese, sauce and veggie options.
Dogs: An admirable Chicago-style dog; sweet and smoky, served with kraut and onions.
Buns: Again with the brioche. Buttery and delicious, it would make a good roll.
Fries: Light gold and crispy, seasoned tastefully with parsley and thyme.
Beer/wine: Stellar half-bottle selection with 50 choices, including a burger-friendly E. Guigal Gigondas.
