Conscious fast food--burgers, in particular--are a hit at this hip South Loop establishment.. In Short Mod, geometrical accents and blond wood details complement the dining experience at this alternative to popular burger chains, located on the ground floor of the University Center. The bent--born of owner David Friedman's experiences consulting for fast-food establishments--is the meat is antibiotic and hormone-free. The (LCD screen) menu is well-edited, showcasing just two burgers (beef or turkey), three sammies (scrambled or fried egg, chicken or portabello) and simply seasoned, sea-salted fries. Toppings go beyond the basics to include aged cheddar and horseradish havarti, plus a choice of a whole-wheat or toasted egg bun. For beverages, shakes, malts and fruit smoothies are on offer.
