Father's Office Restaurant Review

: This second edition of the popular Santa Monica burger-and-brews spot, located in the Helms Bakery building on the edge of Culver City, relieves some of the pent-up demand for what is routinely regarded as one of the best burgers in L.A. The legendary Office Burger from chef/owner Sang Yoon consists of dry-aged beef topped with Maytag blue and Gruyère cheeses, caramelized onions, apple wood-smoked bacon compote and arugula. It doesn’t deviate from the version served at the original location, nor does the quality of sweet potato fries, served in a miniature shopping cart and accompanied by garlicky aïoli (don’t even think of asking for ketchup, which is taboo in either FO locations). You can also find inventive Spanish-inspired tapas (particularly worth ordering if the dish includes squid or octopus) and a highly respectable steak frites, not to mention a wide selection of obscure domestic and international microbrews. This outlet of Father’s Office is larger and flashier than the original, but the vibe is consistent --- and it can be just as crowded.

Best burger and sweet potato fries
by maco on Sun Mar 22, 2009 7:08 pm
I went yesterday to F.O....the beer selection is outstanding and the food is great. The burger is amazing it's ground beef (secret blend!), blue cheese, and onions. Sooo good! The sweet potato fries are delicious as well, and come in a cute little shopping cart. There's always a crowd, so get there early.
Also I loved the tapas especially the goat cheese.
This place is a "must" for locals and visitors.
Is the Best Burger you'll ever have!!!! :lol:
