Chef Allen Susser says he'll have a good audience with Scripps across the street in Palm Beach Gardens for his newest Burger Bar.
Already in the Fort Lauderdale Airport, Susser plans to open Burger Bars throughout South Florida and in airports around the country.
The new one goes into Donald Ross Village with Susser's signature burgers, made from all natural beef specially blended for him. It will have a full bar with adult milkshakes as the special feature. An indoor-outdoor bar takes advantage of the wide sidewalk space in the plaza.
"It'll be a cool neighborhood hangout place, somewhere you can go for burger and a drink with friends after work," he said.
He's expecting Scripps workers to frequent the place, and with late-night service, moviegoers out for eats after a flick.
Allen chose the area, he said, because of his Palm Beach investors. His last venture into the county at Taste, in Delray Beach, closed earlier this year.
He continues to consult in a number of eateries, including Brooklyn Water Bagel Company and
Brickell Bridge Bistro & Bar, Jade Mountain, a luxury
boutique hotel on St. Lucia and Books & Books Cafe.
An October opening is planned for the Burger Bar.
