Burberry Twins and Burger Trio

Fall is here for real now! Brr! (Well, by Los Angeles standards anyway.) I donned my signature pink quilted Burberry jacket this morning and braved the newly brisk weather. (Why "signature"? This is the jacket I was wearing when I got mugged, and it's the kind of jacket people remember.)

Whaddaya know? My pal Perfecta also has good taste! Burberry Twins, activate!
I had a nice lunch with BPLJ, Bootcamper, Cheeks, and our former co-worker Mansmell, but, aside from that, work was fairly uneventful today.

After work, I headed to Venice to meet Nanette and Trisha for dinner at 3 Square Café (a fun casual eatery that offers the Röckenwagner bakery line) on Abbot Kinney. What a cute little place! With cute little food! Loved it! It was the perfect place for us to catch up with each other. As always, we had a lovely time, and I really enjoyed having such great dinner companions, since Mr. Monkey is still out of town.

Nanette had a butter lettuce salad and little shrimp grilled cheese sandwiches.

Trish had a pretzel burger with fries.

And I had the coolest thing ever -- an tiny burger trio! This consisted of beef on a pretzel roll, salmon on brioche, and turkey on brioche.

But wait! There's more! Take the tiny burgers off the tiny pedestals to reveal tiny pickled vegetables and a tiny pool of ketchup! My meal was enjoyable for just the tiny cuteness alone! See the three squares?

After my tiny burger trio, I ordered the hottest cobbler ever with ice cream.

Trish and Nanette opted for tea.

It was good simple food for a good simple evening. So great to see you two! I'm so glad we could get together on such short notice!


  1. The mini-burgers are so darn cute! So jealous.

  2. all the food looks good, but that burger trio is adorable. glad you ladies had a fun dinner last night :)

  3. oh, i almost forgot, so jealousE of your jacket :(

  4. aw man! you mean to tell me you had to eat that cobbler alone? I would'a helped. Damn-cobbler-sounds-delish!

    [mental note for futre baking]

    Oh. Did I mention that those burgers looked good? and on pretzel bread.

  5. I never thought I could want a burger so much at 8:20 in the morning. Yum.

  6. Thanks for the great time, gals! I'm glad everything turned out ok. I was a little worried by the empty restaurant when we arrived, but was happy to see it full when we left.

  7. Dude, I'm loving your pink jacket! And I have no clue what a pretzel burger is. A pretzel on a bun, maybe? A meat patty with a pretzel bun? Just pretzels with some vegetables? Please tell me, inquiring minds want to know.

  8. I would have loved the burger trio! I heart cobbler too, but peach for me please. :)

  9. wow..it is a cute place and great pics of the cute food too!!
