Hamburger Hamlet's original location was on the Sunset Strip, but now this Sherman Oaks outpost is the only one left. In its expansion to the East and West coasts, the owners kept its original design with red leather booths, swiveling bar stools and hanging chandelier-style lamps. In 1950 Marilyn and her actor husband Harry Lewis opened the original Hamlet with a vision of an upscale hamburger joint where families could dine in an affordable yet stylish way. In addition to classic burger selections, they offer Maryland crab cake burgers, pork patties and meaty sandwiches.
