Used to eat the best hamburgers and chunky fries on Bev Blvd. 13 yrs ago (near to La Brea)
opposite a wholefoods market (or another health food shop quite large) and opposite on top of the health store was an up market apt block.!!

      That HAS to be Erewhon...so I'm guessing Authentic Cafe (across the street) Or Red (same side, down a few blocks).

        There was a place on the same side of the street as Erewhon (new location) called Red that had excellent turkey burgers - could that be the place you're thinking of?

          There used to be a place called "Eat Well" in that general area that could be it, but they are gone now so no help there if that was it.

            good news is that if it *was* Eat Well, which im doubting, there's still one on Santa Monica Blvd.

              I'm not sure that qualifies as good news as it never lived up to its name. ;-D

              What we should really be doing is directing the OP to good burger places that they can undoubtedly still find NOW.

                the OP was looking for a specific joint - if it was eat well (and the OP *likes* eat well), then so be it. i like the Buddha Bowl at Eat Well :)

            Authentic Cafe was around for years, and they certainly had burgers. It's across from Erewhon, a health food market. Is that it? (closer to Fairfax)

              Authentic Cafe used to be across the street from erewhon and i loved their burgers. But i remember them having french fries that were on the thinner side, not chunky. I live right over there, and other than Swingers and BLD (too new) i can't think of any hamburger places.

                OK, this a litlle vague, but Erewhon has been on Beverly Blvd. in its new location with the apartments on top probably that long. But a burger place across the street has me stymied. Boxer was across the street, but not really a burger place.
