DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – The burger options in Downtown are continuing to grow, or as some could say, getting fatter.

Downtown’s first Fatburger is scheduled to soft open at 888 S. Figueroa St. in approximately two weeks, said Atif Sheikh, owner of the 50-seat restaurant.

Located on the ground floor of the 888 International Tower building, the diner-style burger joint is opening in a spot that once housed Christie’s Gourmet Coffee and Sandwiches. A grand opening is planned for late February, Sheikh said.

“This is a premier location,” Sheikh said of the 1,700-square-foot space.

 The Fatburger is Sheikh’s first Downtown restaurant, although he has owned other franchise restaurants in the past.

The Fatburger chain was launched in 1952 in Los Angeles. The classic 1950s themed joint is decorated in red and yellow décor reminiscent of ketchup and mustard. Music is also a big influence on the look of the Fatburger spots, which are usually decorated with pictures of bands and a jukebox for customers to pick songs.
