J.E.Y. Hospitality Group has announced plans to open its third Rok:Brgr location in the Village at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, what will be the craft beer and burger gastropub's biggest restaurant yet.
The group currently operates several concepts, including two Miami Rok:Brgr locations, Himmarshee Public House in Fort Lauderdale, and Primo's Italian Kitchen & Bar in Miami. A new restaurant, Pizzacraft, is slated to open this winter in Fort Lauderdale.
According to Rok:Brgr co-owner Marc Falsetto, he and J.E.Y. Group co-founder Charles Hazlett hope to expand the burger gastropub concept within Florida in the coming years; plans are already in the works for restaurants in Orlando, Delray Beach, and Tampa, as well as locations outside the state, in cities like Las Vegas.
"We've been wanting to serve the North Miami area for awhile now, and decided on the Hallandale area," said Falsetto. "When the opportunity with the Village at Gulfstream Park came up, we were in."
The new Hallandale restaurant will be the largest Rok:Brgr yet, a 5,000-square-foot space with indoor/outdoor dining and bar seating able to accommodate more than 200 people.
To celebrate the opening of the new location, Rok:Brgr will be unveiling its newest seasonal menu -- which will be released at all three locations -- to coincide with the Hallandale restaurant's grand opening, which is currently planned for Friday, October 3. Expect plenty of new, never-before-seen burgers, additional entree selections, and more salads and appetizers, said Falsetto.
In case you're wondering, the restaurant will continue to offer its BRGR:BASH Monday special, where all the burgers on the menu are $10, as well as the "Social Brunch," every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., where ladies drink free mimosas all day, and you can rock out to a live DJ.
Rok:Brgr will be located at 501 S. Federal Highway in Hallandale Beach.
