If at first you can’t succeed with an upscale burger joint at Boca’s Town Center mall, well. . . try, try, try again.
At least, that looks like the deal at the sprawling shopping-dining complex on Glades Road, where sometime this spring the first South Florida outlet of Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar will make its debut.
This year will also see the New Jersey-based mini-chain open eateries in Sunrise, Atlanta and Charlottesville, Virginia, dishing made-to-order burgers, sandwiches, shakes and floats to be washed down with a selection of craft beers and almost two dozen boutique wines, both by the glass and bottle. Oh, and a full bar too.
As for the burgers, they’re made from Certified Angus or American Kobe-style beef, priced from $9 to $15. The signature Zinburger comes with manchego cheese, Zinfandel-braised onions and mayo; patties can be customized a variety of cheeses and toppings ranging from avocado and wild mushrooms to onion rings and applewood-smoked bacon. There are also turkey, tuna and veggie burgers, plus chicken sammies, salads and—of course—fries, from zucchini to sweet potato to “double truffle” (truffle aioli, Parmesan and truffle oil).
It’s all a formula that sounds very similar to Butcher & the Burger, Town Center’s previous fling with upscale burgerdom, which opened and then closed faster than you can say, “Would like fries with that?” But who knows? Maybe Zinburger will take the brass (onion) ring.
