Burger & Beer Joint Expands to Brickell
|The Mother Burger is coming to Brickell.|
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."
