Burger & Beer Joint Expands to Brickell

The Mother Burger is coming to Brickell.
The burger craze is heading south, with the expansion of the wildly popular Burger & Beer Joint to Mary Brickell Village. Although B&B has been open for less than a year on Miami Beach, they are on the move. Co-owners Buzzy Sklar and Ron Garcia just signed the lease on a 6,000-square-foot space in Mary Brickell Village. Expect the same carnivorous mixture of burgers and rock and roll at the second location. Sklar notes that the menu will be identical to the original, with popular burgers like Fly Like an Eagle, Thunder Road and Hotel California. The beer-battered onion rings with jalapeno cheese sauce will be there, too, as well as the gimmicky "Mother Burger," a 10-pound Angus beef patty recently featured on the Travel Channel's show, Man V. Food. Also look for their signature adult milkshakes and 99 bottles of beer from around the world.

The Brickell incarnation of B&B hopes to debut by early summer. In addition to the restaurant, there will be a sports bar with an emphasis on the Happy Hour crowd. Understandably Sklar is bullish on the Brickell crowd: "It's a perfect fit for what we do," he says. "We already get our customer base from across the water, so now we are coming to them. Our price point is ideal for the demographic of people working and living in the Brickell area. It's not a $100 meal, like the other restaurants in Mary Brickell Village." Plus, they have a 5 a.m. license so the sports bar will be rocking late night. It doesn't hurt that their new partner for this location is Louis Puig of Space fame. As to whether we will see a B&B in Aventura in the near future, Buzzy comments that, "Our phones keep ringing with new opportunities all of the time. But we are being selective. We want to protect the brand."
