New York City hit Superiority Burger is coming to town, popping up for one day at Sqirl in Virgil Village. That means lots of one-off vegetarian specials, and (hopefully) that famous meatless burger.

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.

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.
