In-N-Out patties are, for some, the Platonic burger ideal—squashy, sloppy and sizzled on a flattop, with just the right ratio of grease to salt—and they’re coming to Toronto, at least temporarily. Ganzi Osteria, the Italian restaurant in the historic Gooderham House on Jarvis Street, announced earlier today that it’s hosting the fast-food chain for a lunchtime pop-up tomorrow (i.e. Thursday, September 11) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. According to the flyer, people will be able to choose from three burger options: Double-Double (two patties, two slices of cheese), Animal Style (mustard-grilled patty with lettuce, tomato, pickles, grilled onions and extra spread) or Protein Style (a burger wrapped in lettuce). One can only speculate about what, if anything, this means for the future of Toronto burgerdom, but there’s a chance it will spell good stuff for local In-N-Out fiends (and less good stuff for the Priest).

Thurs., Sept. 11, 11-3, Ganzi Osteria, 504 Jarvis St., twitter.com
