Burger City

Burger City (47 N. Sixth Ave.), the downtown eatery that supports ArtFare with its profits, will open location no. 2 in the old Intermezzo spot at 5350 E. Broadway Blvd., says manager Roy Schaefer. The new restaurant—slated to open in early September—will have a similar menu, a photo booth, beer and wine, and will be a for-profit venture. Schaefer said the new eatery will have a gourmet pickle bar similar to the one at the original Burger City.
