Superiority Burger is the work of Brooks Headley, a former star pastry chef who let his position at NYC’s Del Posto a few years back in order to open a vegetarian fast food-ish spot in the East Village. The results have been astounding, with Headley drawing tons of non-meat-eating crowds and garnering plenty of praise since opening in 2015. Now Headley is out and about promoting the new Superiority Burger cookbook — hence the one-day drop at Sqirl.
MONDAY JUNE 11th. 8am-4pm. LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA. We will be taking over the specials for the day at one of our favorite joints: @sqirlla. FUN MONDAY, a smidge early for us but we will still be on east coast time so it shouldn't sting too badly. There will be copies of our new cookbook around to grab. Expect some regular old SB stuff, gelato and sorbet, and some frankensteined SB/SQIRL stuff too. Who knows, Koslow might even try to make us put some stuff on actual plates. Oh no.
Sqirl owner Jessica Koslow tells Eater that the plan is to run a variety of off-menu specials throughout the day, starting at 8 a.m. and lasting until 4 p.m. The bulk of the collaborative menu items and standalone Superiority Burger classics will be ready by lunch time, so think 11 a.m. and on. The special menu itself remains unconfirmed as of now.
What’s more, Koslow says that Sqirl will officially go into vacation mode on June 12, meaning the restaurant will be closed for nearly two weeks. Staff will be taking time off, the restaurant will undergo a bit of retooling, and the place will reopen on Saturday, June 23. Until then, it’s all about Superiority Burger.
