Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, the upscale burger restaurant that offers gourmet burgers combined with perfectly paired wine selections, will make its debut in the National Capital Area when it opens its Springfield, Virginia, location on May 3 at the Springfield Town Center.
Since opening the East Coast’s first Zinburger in Clifton, New Jersey, five years ago to much fanfare, stellar reviews, and packed crowds, Zinburger has developed an almost fanatical customer following who enjoy made-to-order gourmet burgers, hand-dipped shakes and floats, decadent pies, and 23 wine varieties.
During the grand opening week, Zinburger will be selling a limited-edition VIP Gold Card for $100 with all proceeds benefiting The Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools, the philanthropic arm of the school system that connects the strategic initiatives of FCPS to the community.
With the donation, guests will receive a $100 Zinburger gift card and a Zinburger VIP Gold Card, which entitles the guest to top of the wait list status plus half price bottles of wine through the end of the year.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to work with organizations like Zinburger that place a strong value on supporting the community they work in,” says Elizabeth Murphy, executive director, The Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools. “We welcome Zinburger to our community and believe in supporting those who support our mission.”
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 featuring rich wood and earth tones and stylish, comfortable seating. The 5,700-square-foot restaurant features 14 high definition TVs located throughout the restaurant and bar with a seating capacity of 291. Zinburger also features a patio seating 42 guests with a fire pit, lounge seating, dining tables, and bar windows open to the outside.
Zinburger offers a full bar with cocktails, 24 beer selections including 16 on tap and many local craft beer as well and a wine menu that includes 23 varieties affordably priced from $5.50 to $12.50 a glass or $21 to $49 for bottles.
On Wednesdays, guests can enjoy half-price bottles of wine. Happy Hour, weekdays from 3 to 6 p.m., features discounts on beer and cocktails, $5 Plain and Simple Burger, and half-price sides including Double Truffle Fries, Zucchini Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, and Hand-cut Fries.
In addition to gourmet burgers, Zinburger also offers a Turkey Burger, Turkey Sloppy Joe, Ahi Burger, Veggie Burger, two chicken sandwiches, and five hearty salads. A dessert menu features old fashioned, hand-dipped shakes, floats, and malts as well as banana cream and chocolate cream pies.
