Father's Office

I often photograph new restaurants that I try, but I'm also trying to capture stills of my all-time favorite foods.

I've tried the rest, and while some come close (shout out to Lazy Ox, Bowery, In & Out!), Father's Office is still my favorite burger in Los Angeles. The greens, the cheese, the absence of tomatoes (I loathe them), the aioli, the bun...all sum up to delicious perfection.

What is your favorite burger in LA?

dylan - yes, me too! med. rare is always the way to go.

victoria - golden state is delicious, and i love that they carry scoops. extra cool points for that. i noticed that they also give a larger portion of fries than they used to.

conti - ah! westside! i'm originally from culver city, and apple pan is one of my mom's favorites. :)

Still haven't tried Father's Office, and I desperately want to. My favorite burger in LA is still from The Stand though. Their chipotle mushroom burger is absolute perfection. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

I just got back from there and tried something different. Just had their Maine Diver scallops. Different, but still good.
