Michael Symon’s much-anticipated B Spot restaurant will open at 11 a.m. tomorrow, with the Iron Chef himself making a special appearance.
Symon has incorporated all kinds of B-foods into the menu from handcrafted beers to brats, bologna and big salads. The main attraction, though, is Symon’s gourmet burgers like the “Symon Says,” topped with bologna, coleslaw, whip sauce and American cheese.
“The excitement level on the street of people walking by and asking questions is very high,” said Sam Lindsley, director of operations for Michael Symon Restaurants. “We believe this is a very good location for us for now and 10 years from now and moving forward from there.”

Menu prices are very reasonable, ranging from $5 to $12, but don’t confuse it for fast food.

The Crocker Park B Spot will be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. Tables are seated on a first-come, first-served basis as the restaurant does not take reservations.
