PARAMUS, N.J., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, the upscale burger restaurant offering gourmet burgers combined with perfectly paired wine selections, will open its second New Jersey location on Tuesday, January 15 at 1 Garden State Plaza in Paramus.
During opening week, January 15 – January 18, Zinburger will donate 15 percent of sales to the Paramus Education Foundation. The Education Foundation of the Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation dedicated to encouraging and funding innovative and challenging ideas and projects amongst Paramus students and teachers.
Since opening the East Coast's first Zinburger in Clifton, N.J. two 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 21 wine varieties.
"With the incredible success of the Clifton location, the appetite for another Zinburger in North Jersey has been very high," said Brad Honigfeld, chief executive officer 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 5,300-square foot restaurant features 11 high definition televisions located throughout the restaurant and bar with a seating capacity of 188.
Zinburger offers a full bar with cocktails, 17 beer selections including 8 on tap and a wine menu that includes 21 varieties affordably priced from $5 to $15 a glass. Weekday happy hour is available from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. On Sundays, 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.
