The Happiest Hour
The Happiest Hour is a cocktail bar and restaurant that describes itself as “whimsical”. The Happiest Burger is stacked high with two thin patties cooked to medium, a huge mound of American cheese, shredded iceberg lettuce, mustard, and a special sauce. Everything is piled inside a toasted buttered potato roll. The beef comes from well-known local butcher Pat LaFrieda.
The potato roll is decidedly New York, but the burger itself takes a great deal of inspiration from the West Coast sensation – In-N-Out Burger. The mixing of East and West makes for a must-try burger. Be sure to pair your burger with one of their signature, creatively-named cocktails such as the Pineapple Express, the Belle of the Ball, or What the Doctor Ordered.
