Los Angeles suffers from a pretty chronic case of Burgermania, and the hype gets fueled by news of an impending new contender for the city's favorite beefy bite between two buns. One of the most highly-anticipated burgerventures is the dream team of Nancy Silverton and Amy Pressman, and their Short Order burger restaurant, which is getting closer to reality in its spot in the historic Original Farmers' Market.

Last week a groundbreaking ceremony--and inaugural burger cookout--was held on the site, which is in the old DuPar's Bakery space.

It's been a while since we sampled the Short Order Ida's burger at the Taste of the Farmers' Market, though we did spot the Short Order gals handing out burgers to a long line of enthusiasts at the Taste of the Nation this past Sunday. Can't wait until those delicious burgers are cooking for real at 3rd and Fairfax!
