Square 1 Burgers & Bar: Not your typical burger joint!
If one were to play word associations, a typical response to burger, would be fast food. Perhaps a less typical association to burger, would be gourmet. Square 1 Burgers & Bar serves gourmet burgers in a fun setting.
Started several years ago in Tampa by longtime restaurateurs Bill Shumate and Joanie Corneil (Bella’s Italian Café), Square 1 opened it first Sarasota location on the South Trail in December, 2010. The 2nd Sarasota location is at University Park Center and opened Spring, 2011.
The décor at Square 1 is bright, colorful and whimsical. With flat screen TV’s, booths which create private spaces, tables, and a large bar area; the décor frames the dining experience.
Offering soups, salads, appetizers, burgers, sliders, vegetarian options, and luscious desserts, the menu at Square 1 is extensive. Serving 9 types of burgers (kobe beef, angus beef, buffalo, chicken, turkey, ahi tuna, ostrich, portabello mushroom, and veggie) there are a multitude of combinations from which to choose.
