Soon You'll Able to Get Michael Symon's Food Inside the Q



Disappointed with the food selection inside the Q? Well, Cleveland's own star chef is making some improvements. Michael Symon is leading two new joints inside the arena, both basically smaller versions of his other restaurants, for those basketball fans looking for something better tha a hot dog to scarf down on. Food fit for a king, and the fans.

From Scene's food writer Douglas Trattner's blog:

The Cleveland-based Iron Chef is putting the finishing touches on two new eateries located inside Quicken Loans Arena. Essentially scaled-down versions of Bar Symon and the soon-to-open B Spot, the casual outposts are expected to be open well in advance of the Cavs’ home opener.

‘These places don’t look like your typical walk-up spaces,” Symon told me. “They created these really cool open-air mini restaurants. The mini Bar Symon looks just like a smaller version of Bar Symon.”

The restaurants will also feature scaled back adaptations of the menus to ensure quality and consistency, adds Symon. B Spot will serve four burgers, bratwurst and fries. Bar Symon will offer seasoned popcorn, chips and cheese fondue, grilled sausages and his now-famous Barberton-style fried chicken. There will be no servers; diners will place their orders at a window and eat at tables.
