If every burger on a menu includes bacon and a special sauce, the food is bound to be killer. True, it could be killer in the way of a heart attack. But mostly it’s killer in the way of bacon with peanut butter and pickles. Or bacon with blue cheese. Bacon with roasted chiles. Bacon with two burger patties. There’s also the allegedly “unfinishable” Marine burger—a welcome spicy challenge. Killer Burger also has a “roll your own” burger option and sides including mac and cheese and baked beans. Did we mention there’s bacon?
Brunch at Fleur de Lis Bakery & Cafe
You may not realize it, but you’ve most likely enjoyed Greg Mistell’s breads even if you’ve yet to step inside his Hollywood cafe—he provides the rolls (sandwich and otherwise) for Olympic Provisions, Mother’s Bistro, Tails & Trotters, Big-Ass Sandwiches, Bunk and Devil’s Dill, to name but a few. Of course, he also knows how to use those same breads in-house, as is evidenced by his basil-chicken sausage, Swiss cheese and egg breakfast sandwich (served on a ciabatta) and his French toast (three thick slices of brioche that have been given a quick, citrusy custard bath before they’re griddled and liberally sprinkled with powdered sugar and fresh fruit). But perhaps his finest breakfast dish is his simplest: a pair of soft scrambled eggs stuffed between a sliced croissant. It may sound plain, but because of the croissant’s soft, chewy and buttery texture, it’s plainly perfect and needs no other ingredient to make it any better—save for maybe a fork and a knife, as it’s tasty but pretty messy too. Breakfast is served from 7 to 11 a.m., Monday through Friday, and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
