Joseph Mahon Launches Permanent Pop-Up: Burger Parlor

I love pop-up restaurants (next step after food trucks!). This one looks interesting:











From Eater LA: Joseph Mahon Launches Permanent Pop-Up: Burger Parlor – Certified Open.

Chef Joseph Mahon, taking a page from the Ludo how-to-run-a-popup-restuarant manual, moved into a presently functioning breakfast and lunch spot called Rialto, transforming the restaurant during dinner service into Burger Parlor. So, it’s Rialto by day, Burger Parlor by night. A “permanent pop-up,” as the chef describes it, “we’re open when the NEON sign is on.”

This chef-driven burger spot is all about high quality, thoughtfully sourced ingredients (menu here). Burger buns are baked daily, hormone-free beef is sourced from Nebraska and ground daily. Burger Parlor’s 10 burgers cost between $8 and $11 (not bad) and include combos like fontina, potato chips, tomato confit, mushrooms, arugula, chipotle aioli; sausage patty, crispy mozzarella, oregano, roasted peppers; and the more tame mix of American cheese, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, secret sauce. On the side one can order fries, onion rings, or one of three salads. To drink there’s soda, a medley of craft beers, and floats/milkshakes for those craving sweet.
