Last month Grub Street readied New York for a coming onslaught from L.A.’s 60-year-old Fatburger empire. Back at home, the burger chain is about to break the seal on a new 50-seat, 1,700-square-foot store in Downtown, the first for the neighborhood. The restaurant plans to open on Figueroa in about two weeks, L.A. Downtown News reports, with a grand-opening scheduled for late next month. 888 S. Figueroa St. [LADTN]
