Bar Symon closed in Avon Lake seven years ago, but it will reopen this spring at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. It is going into the former Panini's Bar & Grill space in Concourse C.
With locations at Pittsburgh International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, the Cleveland spot makes the third in the bunch. The restaurants are a collaboration between Michael Symon and Ben Rababy of United Concessions Group.
"I'm very excited to be opening our airport Bar Symon in our hometown!" Symon told Scene. "They have been very successful in several other cities serving responsibly sourced, quick-service American bar food and we couldn't be happier that Cleveland Hopkins has asked us to do one also. We've been waiting a long time for an invite to bring one back home."
The menu features items like the Fat Doug burger from B Spot, Lola burger from Lola, pulled pork sandwich with coffee BBQ sauce, and potato and cheese pierogi with kielbasa, griddled onions and mustard sour cream.
