Symon’s Burger Joint, the counter-service-only burger spot from chef Michael Symon, is now open as part of Urban Outfitters’ Space 24 Twenty complex on the Drag. A tipster drove by this afternoon and noticed a line in front of the service window. The burger spot was slated to open by this weekend.
It's set to be a version of Symon's B Spot Burger chain. The menu includes the signature Symon burger and the Austin-only Longhorns one. As a tribute to Texas, hot links will be sold, alongside fries and shakes.
Also within the Urban Outfitters’ complex will be the first out-of-state location of Pizzeria Vetri, opening this Saturday. Owner and chef Marc Vetri recently sold a majority of his restaurant group to the clothing company. This means that future Pizzeria Vetris will be in store for Austin and the rest of the country.
