Celebrity chef Michael Symon’s remaining Michigan burger restaurant B Spot appears to have shuttered. Equipment at the chain’s Royal Oak location at 310 S. Main St. was reportedly completely moved out this week, according to the Metro Times.
The first Michigan B Spot location opened in Rochester Hills in May 2014 and was followed up by the Royal Oak restaurant in November of that year. However, the brand has scaled back significantly in the past year with restaurant shutters reported in Indianapolis, Columbus, and Rochester Hills. The B Spot website now lists only three remaining Cleveland locations. Eater has reached out to B Spot for comment on the future of the brand. Michael Symon still owns and operates high-end steakhouse Roast at the Westin Book Cadillac in downtown Detroit, which happens to make a damn fine burger.
The closure of B Spot also marks another recent shutter on Main Street in Royal Oak. Andiamo’s Main Street location closed permanently in July. Meanwhile Red Fox English Pub and Cantina Diablo’s are in the midst of a rebrand after a group erroneously claimed the businesses were closing.
