“Downtown Burbank rivals Downtown L.A. in its evolution as the hip ‘go-to’ spot for dining, shopping and entertainment. There is an excitement and buzz in the air as iconic restaurants and shops are opening and taking advantage of the great weather, pedestrian-friendly streets and seven-day-a-week traffic. This is the beginning of something big!”
