Mozza and La Brea Bakery queen Nancy Silverton is teaming up with Amy Pressman of Old Town Bakery to prepare a three-course meal centered around grass-fed burgers at Canele tonight. Daily Dish reports this very special guest appearance is a showcase for the chefs' proposed burger restaurant, tentatively called "Grass Burger," and headed for The Farmer's Market on Fairfax with the help of a few needed investors. We know Silverton strives for, and often attains, perfection. After spiffing up our pizza reputation, we can't wait to see her new approach to burgers. Tonight's three-course dinner costs $36 and is walk-in only from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Atwater Village restaurant. Here's the three-course menu, via Atwater Village Newbie:
