Burgerim Quits Beverly Hills

You know I’ve been tracking the massive expansion of the Israeli chain obsessed with lilliputian burgers, Burgerim.  But could there be a bump in the road to SoCal domination?  As a reader pointed out (Thanks Tony!) the new-ish Burgerim at 250 S Beverly Dr. in Beverly Hills has already called it quits after about a year.  Not sure what happened, but the reader suspects competition from Burger Lounge, which is directly across the street, could have had something to do with it.

Signature Burger Signs Off In Culver City

The Culver City mercurial food scene continues its rocky ride…  There’s a big for lease sign in the window of what used to be Signature Burger at 3835 Main St. in Downtown Culver City.  Could it be due to the new Burgerim about to open just a few doors down?   I’ll keep watching to see what may take its place.

Greek Cuisine Stop’n Café Closes In Santa Monica To Make Way For…

A sad day for old school Santa Monica aficionados…  Recently, after 30 years, Downtown Santa Monica staple Greek Cuisine Stop’n Café closed its iconic location at 1237 3rd Street Promenade.  A gracious note posted on the front door offers gratitude to the community and explains that they have, “decided to pass on this beautiful location to the next generation of entrepreneurs.”  And who might that entrepreneur be?  An ABC application on the front of the space reveals that it is none other than a familiar purveyor of diminutive burgers that is bent on world domination…  Burgerim.

Burgerim Now Dishing Diminutive Burgers In MDR

Back in October of last year, I told you about the imminent arrival of Burgerim to the space at 4020C Lincoln Blvd. in Marina Del Rey.  They recently have thrown open their doors for business.  On the menu?  Their proprietary brand of customized 2.8 oz. mini burgers, with a choice of “3 buns, 6 sauces, 11 patties, and 9 unconventional toppings”, that are sold in quantities.  The opening of this branch is one more step in the ambitious Israeli chain’s inexorable march toward world domination.
