I sat down with Charlie Lew co-owner of Stout last week.. for a very casual quick conversation/lunch. This was not my first time to the established burger joint that sits smack dab in the middle of Hollywood and although they have a good loyal clientele..I have come across plenty of folks who have driven by the open aired space and thought to themselves..”I want to try that”.. So I thought I would give you guys a little internet taste..before you head over.
I “Like” this place.. simple and good.. Burgers cooked and flavored to perfection and some of the best crispy sweet potato fries I have come across.
But don’t let the salads and the vegetarian options on the menu fool you .. Stout is about Beer and Burgers.. and the pairing of the two.
…going right along with the beef and chicken that is ground fresh in house everyday I counted at least 20 beers on tap that rotate weekly and at least 9 bottled varieties..including a non alcoholic and a Gluten free option. .. NICE!
But I am not going to sit here and write a bunch of stuff that you can easily read on their website..(which is super informative BTW). I am just going to tell you that everything I have ever had at this place has been super amaze!.
The Stout burger ….fantastic.!
The Shu burger….makes me smile..
and the Six Weeker.. which is a blend of sweet and savory….blew my mind.
…and unlike many of the places popping up around town who will not modify anything no mater what..UGH!.. Stout wont add ingredients to your burger but they will remove anything you ask them too.
It’s called good customer service without compromising their vision.
Open til 4am.. and working on a Studio City location to open in January of next year…Stout is sure to be a regular burger & beer stop for all that make that turn on Selma and Cahuenga.
..and just know that I am definitely heading back for dessert the first chance I get..Bread pudding and brownie sundaes..yum!
Oh..and did I mention they have $5 dollar burgers for happy hour…
