Top Round

Standout Store: Top Round

With its nostalgic vibe and fine-dining approach, Los Angeles–based Top Round gives roast beef a fancy makeover, capturing plenty of rabid fans in the process.

The one-year-old shop features a menu of six inventive slow-roasted beef sandwiches, such as the Horse & Hole, made with Provel cheese, horseradish cream, and roasted mushrooms on a sesame bun; the Black & Blue, made with black pepper, Blue cheese, and caramelized onions on a sesame bun; and the shop’s signature Beef & Cheese, featuring a homemade Cheese Whiz spread.
