Larchmont Grill

in drinks, movies, restaurant

I knew those two Diet Sodas would respark my old habit! Yesterday at 3 pm I found myself craving something sweet and bubbly. I decided to make my own version of Zevia.

SodaStream Seltzer, Vanilla Stevia, and a splash of Berry Flavor Essence that came with the Sodastream

This did the trick, but I’d much rather have a six-pack of Zevia.

We took Julius to Lake Hollywood Dog Park so he could get a little exercise.

When we first moved to L.A., we couldn’t believe this place. Not only is it the total opposite of the enclosed, smelly gravel pits we were used to in NYC, but it has an incredible view:

Ball-obsessed

We all love the Chuckit!

So focused on the ball he wouldn’t drink water, or say hello to the other Jack Russell

After the pooch was tuckered out, we walked ourselves to Larchmont Grill for an early dinner.

Wednesday is Burger Night!!!!

The interior of the Craftsman bungalow is cozy and chic

But we chose to sit outside; we had the entire patio to ourselves!

Started off with a piece of bread with some herbed olive oil

And used my handy Seafood Watch App to make sure the Salmon I ordered was sustainable

The burger is mixed with “chives, diced onion, green bell pepper, and roasted shallots; topped with pickled ginger, shredded cucumber, and a roasted garlic aoli on a sesame seed bun.” I got the house green salad on the side, and used a drizzle of dressing.

It was spectacular! Almost reminiscent of a crab cake because it was so crispy. And unlike the burger from the previous night, all of the toppings complemented, rather than competed with, one another.

Abe’s veggie burger was delicious and crunchy too (almost falafel-ish)

P1210326.JPG

“A homemade patty of zucchini, yellow squash, onion, yellow bell pepper, brown rice, and just a touch of wheat flour; topped with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and Swiss cheese”

I stole a bite

And about 4 or 5 sweet potato fries – PERFECTION

Man I was happy (and stuffed) after this meal. It’s a little expensive, which is why we don’t come here often, but will definitely be back for more Wednesday Burgers.

I enjoyed some cocoa and a Pecan Zucchini Cookie around 10:30 pm

Two days of burgers – will there be a third?! (I just got a Living Social deal for 8 oz. Burger Bar…) I’ll see where my appetite takes me for Thursday, but as of now, I do know this – Larchmont Grill kicks Larchmont Bungalow’s veggie burger ass.

What do you like on your burgers?! I think I need to pick up some pickled ginger….
