3 B Spot burger restaurants closed in 3 states

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Michael Symon Restaurants have closed three B Spot restaurants in three states.

The company shut down the burger restaurant in Indianapolis on April 30. This month it closed ones in Rochester Hills, about 30 miles north of Detroit, and in Columbus.

B Spot remains open in Beachwood, Strongsville and Westlake, along with locations in FirstEnergy Stadium and Quicken Loans Arena. There’s another in Royal Oak, a suburb of Detroit.

This year, the Northeast Ohio B Spots added the meatless Impossible Burger to the menu, which features a dozen burger creations ranging from a basic Plain Jane to the Yo!, burger with fried salami, capicola, hot peppers, a peppery shasha sauce and Provolone cheese.

There is no word on the closures or whether they affect the future of the Northeast Ohio locations. A message left with Symon’s publicist was not immediately returned Wednesday.

As of Wednesday morning, the B Spot Twitter account still listed its identifier saying “Michael Symon’s B Spot Burgers has 6 locations in the Cleveland, Columbus & Metro Detroit areas” though the restaurant’s Facebook page appears updated.

Symon remains busy with a variety of projects and other restaurants, including Lola Bistro and Mabel’s BBQ in the E. 4th Street corridor in downtown Cleveland and Roast in Detroit. This year, “Michael Symon’s Playing with Fire: BBQ and More from the Grill, Smoker, and Fireplace” came out via Clarkson Potter. A month later, ABC cancelled the daytime show, “The Chew,” on which Symon was a co-host.
