The Boumaroun brothers were raised in the restaurant industry. After immigrating to America from Lebanon, their grandfather built an empire of more than 30 Big Boys, while their parents opened Michigan’s first Red Robin. When it came time to join the family business, the brothers moved to Chicago to take over Aladdin’s, a Lebanese restaurant in Lakeview. The boys moved on when they saw a new trend on the horizon: burger bars. They opened Chicago’s first (of what will be several) LA-based 25 Degrees in August 2011. 25 Degrees is hands down the best burger bar in Chicago.
Its no surprise they are on the list. If you have not been yet we strongly recommend you try it out.
