eats - short order

despite car trouble on sunday, it didn't stop me from enjoying at least part of the day, so heidi & i took a spin in her car for lunch at the grove. it was quite the crowd over the extended break, so it was definitely a harbinger of what's to come this holiday season. nevertheless, we were undeterred in our quest to try short order - nancy silverton's (mozza) new burger joint.

our order consisted of:

* short order burger - grass-fed beef, morbier (french milk cheese), griddled mushrooms, bibb (butterhead lettuce) & mustardy mayo
* short order spuds w/dipping sauce - basically a baked potato ripped apart by hand, then flash fried and served with typical baked potato accoutrements (sour cream, chives & bacon)
* coffee malt milk shake - scrumptious
* bear republic mach 10 - very difficult to find on tap anywhere, let alone socal

the first thing that jumps out at you is the quality of the grass-fed beef here. if you don't ask, they serve it medium-rare, which is just how i like it. ranking-wise, i'd have to put it at either #2 or #3 in LA behind father's office and next to the golden state on fairfax. and besides the short order, there's another burger w/beef (nancy's backyard), along with turkey, pork and tuna for variety.

the short order spuds were a revelation! it's a different experience than typical fries and seeing as i love baked potatoes, this couldn't have been any better. plus, they offer off up ketchup to go along with the dipping sauce...
