After a quick decline a few years ago, Cassell’s closed up its 70-year-old shop and the classic burgers seemed gone for good. Fast forward to now, and Cassell’s is operating in a retro space inside Koreatown’s Hotel Normandie and serving burgers better than they ever were before. You can add a fried egg or bacon on top if you’re feeling powerful or uncomfortably high, but this burger doesn’t need it. The patty itself is just that good.
