An Israeli-based chain of restaurants that features small, "gourmet'' hamburgers is coming to the Highland Strip, landlord Loeb Properties announced Thursday.
Burgerim will start construction inside 569 South Highland later this year. Loeb Properties is renovating and redeveloping the Highland Strip entertainment district in the University District.
According to the Burgerim website, the restaurant uses an "always more than one" approach to serving hamburgers from freshly ground meat. Each is 2.8 ounces, and they come in orders of two of the mini-burgers, three or a "party box'' of 16.
