Laurel Tavern is a hip and bustling craft beer and gourmet grub (Ok, I guess it’s a gastropub) spot located right off of Laurel Canyon in Studio City.
Super easy for us non-Valley folk to get to. That’s key.
They seem to be known for a few things (Burgers, Pork Belly Skewers and Chorizo Queso Fundido) but tonight, we just tried the burger.
Burger patty was juicy, I loved the combo of bacon and blue cheese and it wasn’t too big to fit my mouth around.
Really solid food, no complaints at all. Drinks were tasty and the servers were super friendly. Shockingly so.
If I lived nearby, I would definitely come more often.
But seeing as I don’t live in the Valley, I probably wouldn’t come back.
It’s gonna take a lot more than beers and burgs to get my ass over the hill (at 2 mph in rush hour).
