25 Degrees is located inside the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It's open 24 hours and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The name of the restaurant refers to the temperature difference between a medium rare and well done burger.
We decided to try out all of their 3 creations. The sides come with your choice of french fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, half and half, or a half a salad. Each of these options are $12, which I feel is well priced considering you get a quality burger and some nice sides.
#1 - prelibato gorgonzola, crescenza, bacon, caramelized onions, arugula, thousand island
This was our favorite burger of the night. All the components of this burger melded together nicely to make this one tasty burger!! I especially enjoyed the arugula, the cheeses, and of course the BACON!
#2 - burrata cheese, crispy proscuitto, roasted tomatoes, pesto
This was our second favorite. When I saw the crispy prosciutto on the menu, I was immediately intrigued by this burger. Unfortunately, the crispy prosciutto isn't even close to the flavor level of bacon. It was a still a solid and good burger, but not as good as the #1.
Our least favorite burger of the night. The flavor of the mezzo secco jack, green chili and chipotle added a spiciness to the burger, and the avocado added a bit of richness but not much flavor overall. If you enjoy green chili, chipotle, and jack cheese, then I suppose you might enjoy this burger. But it wasn't for us.
sweet potato fries, onion rings, and french fries
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves at 25 degrees. Very laid back and casual restaurant with some gourmet style burgers. If we are in the area and craving a burger, this is going to be our place!
