Next Iron Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn turns out perfect patties and impeccable shakes at this spot. With so many tasty eats coming out of the kitchen, Jenni Farley said it smelled “like heaven” when she visited with Michael Symon. The pair slurped down toasted-marshmallow milkshakes made with a fresh custard base and crowned with a quenelle of whipped cream. Michael raved about the Coletti’s Smokehouse burger, whose cheese-slicked patty comes stacked with applewood-smoked bacon and onion rings.
Along with a stunning view of the Los Angeles skyline, this rooftop spot features an inventive menu dreamed up by The Next Iron Chef contestant Eric Greenspan, whose creations include a gooey grilled cheese and a ceviche made with hibiscus and pink peppercorns. If stopping by for breakfast, opt for the pancake lasagna: layers of fluffy pancakes, scrambled eggs, crumbled sausage and bacon, and maple bechamel, all smothered in melted cheddar cheese.
