You’ve got a delicious new habit on the horizon! Say “bye-bye” to blah burgers — the new Tempura Jalapeño Charburger arrives at The Habit Burger Grill on March 11th nationwide! The Habit’s new burger has the perfect mix of sweet and spicy flavors that give it a unique flavor profile that will delight even the most seasoned “foodies”!
Known for their amazing limited-time and seasonal menu items, The Habit Burger Grill is taking its innovation to the next level with the introduction of the Japanese-style tempura batter — which gives the jalapeños a light, airy, and crisp texture. Tempura jalapeños and spicy/sweet jalapeño jam are combined in a way where all the distinct flavors fit together in perfect harmony.
This launch comes on the heels of the burger joint topping Thrillist’s list of “Underrated Burger Chains that Need to be in Every State!” This newest menu item will not disappoint – with its seasoned chargrilled beef patty, topped with crispy tempura jalapeños covered in sweet and spicy jalapeño jam with melted cheese, a zesty jalapeño mustard ranch sauce, tomato and green leaf lettuce on a toasted brioche bun. On a diet? The Habit Burger Grill even offers lettuce-wrapped burgers! It’s truly a mouth-watering experience!
Pizza (and Italian cuisine) lovers unite! Monday, March 9th and Tuesday, March 10th are shaping up to be a couple of the hottest winter nights in Los Angeles. From 5:00 p.m. until midnight on both dates, the highly acclaimed Lucali will be taking over THE NICE GUY for an extremely limited-time-only run. The collaboration is the result of a longstanding friendship between John Terzian, co-owner of The h.wood Group (along with Brian Toll) and Lucali’s legendary owner and founder Mark Iacono.
In signature Lucali fashion, guests will be greeted by a classic 1975 Chevrolet Caprice convertible, which i’s a tell-tale sign you’ve arrived at the Brooklyn outpost. Once inside, Iacono will be slinging four of his signature 18” pies — margarita, pepperoni, hot pepper, and shallot straight from the oven. In addition, Iacono will be dishing out his celebrated homemade meatballs. And if you’re still not sold, classic Italian libations including a Campari spritz and Negroni will also be available.
No reservations are available and guests are encouraged to line up early for the first come, first serve NYC-meets-LA experience. THE NICE GUY is located at 401 North La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048.
Lucali first opened doors in Iacono’s own childhood neighborhood of Carroll Gardens in 2006 and has become a Brooklyn institution in the years since garnering accolades from Bloomberg, Forbes and The New York Times along the way. In 2012, Jay Z and Beyonce created headlines when they ditched the Grammy’s in favor of dinner at Lucali.
