What would you say is the best restaurant that serves THE BEST patty melt?

  1. Don't know if its "The Best" but Pann's makes an awfully good one.

      1. re: JAB

        Fourthed, if that's a word. I think it's their best burger, certainly their best burger bargain. The sucker is a half-pounder...which means I'm allowed maybe one a year. It's worth it.

      2. I can only refer you to my item #4 in my response to the recent "simple, awesome dishes" thread:

        Chupa de camarones at Mario’s Peruvian
        Bistecca ala fiorentino at Pane e Vino
        Gnocchi w wild mushroom sauce at La Buca
        Patty melt at Pann's
        BLT at Burger Continental
        Clams w chorizo at The Hungry Cat
        Grilled seabass at Fisherman’s Outlet
        Rotisserie chicken at Pollo ala Brasa

        Pann's patty melt defines the genre.

        1. The patty melt at Big Jo's in Santa Monica is really good.
