The Office Burger is, pretty much indisputably, the parent of all gourmet burgers, and it has reigned as one of L.A.’s best burgers for 17 (SEVENTEEN!) years. With a medium rare dry aged beef patty tucked into an oblong bun, it’s topped with arugula, Gruyere and blue cheese, and a gooey mass of bacon and caramelized onions—and now it’s coming to the Arts District.

Chef Sang Yoon—who is basically the patron saint of gastropubs—is opening a third iteration of Fathers Office this fall in the Garey Building, behind Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. That means Eastsiders will no longer have to go anywhere near the 10 to access Yoon’s signature combination of ketchup-free burgers and local craft beer, which is really a win for everyone (less vehicle emissions + more burgers = good).
