First Taste

Ingo's Tasty Food in Arcadia Mighty Tasty

When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).

Restaurant: Ingo's Tasty Food Location: 4502 North 40th Street Open: Over two weeks Eats: Gourmet burgers Price: $11 to $30 per person

Ingo's Tasty Food in Arcadia might be the hamburger stand of your fantasies -- or the future.

The latest project from the folks at LGO Hospitality (La Grande Orange, Chelsea's Kitchen, Grateful Spoon Gelato), its modern, cylindrical structure of steel and brick is almost Jeston's-esque in appearance, its tidy menu of snacks, burgers, and libations already some of the best in town.

And although the name is said to be inspired by a German music teacher one of LGO's partners had while studying violin and guitar as a child, chances are you'll find the caveman-ish version ("In goes tasty food!") to be much more appropriate.
