Bill Dertouzos and Susan McAlindon's Hole-in-the-Wall Burger Joint, which had to vacate its original West L.A. space last November by order of the landlord, landed safely on the other side of The 405 Freeway, and is now open on Colorado Avenue. Unemployed Eater reports that the new address is serving an expanded menu in a larger space, now featuring items like milkshakes, desserts like cookies and brownies, and special, limited edition burgers.
Further West, Wendy's is now open on Lincoln where the giant Arby's cowboy hat once stood. The former is committed to grass-fed Angus on locally-made rolls, free from hormones and antibiotics, while the latter swears it never employed pink slime in its square patties. So, yeah, take your pick. [UE]
