There are a few must-eat dishes in Los Angeles: Bay Cities’ Godmother, Sqirl‘s ricotta tartine, Langer’s #19 and Father’s Office burger. It’s the burger that gave birth to all the other burgers. Caramelized onions, bacon, blue cheese, gruyere, and arugula. No additions, no substitutions – don’t even dare asking for ketchup or you’ll sound like a rookie. Also, don’t bother reading the menu: come to Father’s Office for the burger, or don’t come at all.
