The restaurant serves burgers stacked with toppings like wild mushrooms, pea shoots and guacamole. For those looking for a non-burger option, the menu also includes chicken, ahi tuna and salads.

In addition to a 25-bottle wine list, Zinburger mixes a dozen flavors of shakes and malts, including Nutella hazelnut crunch and salted caramel.

The restaurant will be celebrating its grand opening week by selling VIP Gold Cards for $100. The money goes to Camp Twin Lakes, a camp for kids with serious illnesses and disabilities. VIP Gold Card holders receive a $100 gift card, half price bottles of wine through the end of 2018 and the ability to be bumped to the top of the wait list if there’s a wait to be seated at the restaurant, according to a press release.

The restaurant will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
