Seriously. This is a town where somebody looked at a couple of grilled-cheese sandwiches and thought, hey, those could really be used as hamburger buns.
Introducing GO Burger, a bastion of burger innovation here to bring you spiked milkshakes and melted gruyère, opening Monday at the corner of Sunset and Vine.
It’s a bright, modern corner spot from the beef artisans behind BLT Steak, with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto one of Hollywood’s busiest intersections―an easy spot for a quick work lunch, or a burger date before or after a movie at the ArcLight.
To start: you can’t not try the UltiMELT, a giant burger topped with bacon and caramelized onions, with two gruyère-on-rye grilled-cheese sandwiches for buns. Supplement it with Fried Dill Pickles or Duck-Fat Fries. Or even a salad (yes, they have them).
If you want your booze in a milkshake, try the Aztec Mocha (it’s tequila, coffee ice cream, chocolate syrup and cayenne pepper). But if you prefer your cocktail in cocktail form, go for the Brown Derby, made of rum, lime and maple syrup.
It’s definitely the drink Mrs. Butterworth would order.
