Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, the upscale burger restaurant offering gourmet burgers combined with paired wine selections, will open its first Florida location on Tuesday, May 20, at The Colonnade Outlets at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise.

As a way to give back to the local community, Zinburger will donate 10 percent of sales from May 20-23 to the Broward Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports public schools in Broward County by developing, promoting, and funding emerging initiatives that benefit the community.

Since opening the East Coast’s first Zinburger in Clifton, New Jersey, more than three years ago to much fanfare, stellar reviews, and packed crowds, Zinburger has developed an almost fanatical following.

“We are pleased to bring Zinburger’s brand of gourmet burgers, salads, sides, shakes, desserts, and a carefully crafted selection of wine to South Florida,” says Brad Honigfeld, chief executive officer of The Briad Group, a licensee for Zinburger.

Zinburger has seven locations in New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Virginia. Additional restaurants are slated to open in Boca Raton and Atlanta in the next six month.

All the gourmet burgers at Zinburger are scratch-made and cooked to order on a griddle in their own juices. The Certified Angus Beef and American-style Kobe Beef are ground fresh twice a day. Signature burgers include the Zinburger (with Manchego Cheese & Zinfandel Braised Onions) and the Kobe Burger (with Vermont Cheddar & Wild Mushrooms).

Zinburger’s décor is sleek, contemporary, upbeat, and playful with rich wood and earth tones and stylish, comfortable seating. The 5,421-square-foot restaurant has 11 high-definition televisions located throughout the restaurant and bar, with a seating capacity of 257.  Zinburger also has a huge patio with a fire pit, lounge seating, and dining tables.

Zinburger is located at The Colonnade Outlets at Sawgrass Mills, 1800 Sawgrass Mill Circle, #2460 in Sunrise.
