Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, the upscale burger restaurant offering gourmet burgers combined with perfectly paired wine selections, will open its first New York location on Tuesday, October 22 at Walt Whitman Shops, 160 Walt Whitman Road in Huntington Station.
As a way to give back to the local community, Zinburger will donate 15 percent of sales from October 22-25 to The Huntington Foundation for Excellence in Education.
HFEE is a non-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing educational opportunities for all students in the Huntington school district.
Since opening the East Coast’s first Zinburger in Clifton, New Jersey, almost three 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, decedent pies and 23 wine varieties.
“With the incredible success of our three New Jersey locations, we are excited to finally bring Zinburger to New York,” says Brad Honigfeld, CEO of The Briad Group, a licensee for Zinburger.
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 5,141-square foot restaurant features nine high definition televisions located throughout the restaurant and bar with a seating capacity of 193 including an outdoor patio.
Zinburger offers a full bar with cocktails, 17 beer selections including 8 on tap and a wine menu that includes 23 varieties. Weekday happy hour is available from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. On Wednesdays, guests can enjoy half-price bottles of wine.
In addition to gourmet burgers, Zinburger also offers a Turkey Burger, Turkey Sloppy Joe, Ahi Burger, Vegi Burger, two chicken sandwiches, and five hearty salads.
Side selections include generous portions of Hand-Cut Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, Zucchini Fries, Onion Rings, Coleslaw, Cottage Cheese, and Double Truffle Fries.
A dessert menu features old fashioned, hand-dipped shakes, floats, and malts as well as banana cream and chocolate cream pies.
