This week is all about the burger, and Dallas certainly has no shortage of the delicacy. What makes a perfect burger is the flavor of the beef, and freshness of the bun, and toppings. A burger should develop a nice sear to trap all the juices inside. Pressing a burger releases all of its flavor and makes the burger dry and ends up crumbling.

When Clark Food and Wine shuttered last year the owner Randall Warder claimed that a California restaurant chain would soon fill its space. Recently this chain sent us notice, only to find that it only has a two locations in Los Angeles, and the menu appears to be a nice fit for the area.

Scanning photos of the pending restaurant Laurel Tavern its interior looks much like what they found at Clark. Exposed brick and a long narrow bar. The menu is a bit different and burger focused but also has Clark-like small plates.  Continue reading
