The Oinkster is chef Andre Guerrero's take on the mid-century hamburger spot and it's not surprising that he's gotten a lot of things very right. Guerrero grew up in the restaurant business and has enjoyed success on the higher end of the market with his two Studio City restaurants: the upscale Mexican establishment Senor Fred's and the Cal-Asian Max Restaurant. His food bona fides are certain, but one of his best decisions was the location and look of his re-imagining of the fast food restaurant. Guerrero chose the defunct A-framed Jim's Burgers-—a fantastic representation of the Googie architecture of the 1940s to 1960s. Think "space age" spaces that are called Futurist, but feel antiquated. I love them. For me, being around so much mid-century architecture is one of the treats of living in Southern California. The remodel is clean and pleasing: The interior is full of red vinyl and stainless steel and the patio is rimmed in mod bamboo hedges. Groovy.
