The speciality gourmet burger joint, B Spot Burgers, 176 N. Adams, Rochester Hills, has closed after about four years in business at the Village of Rochester Hills. Started as a franchise by celebrity chef Michael Symons, a handful of the gourmet burger joints have been opened in the country, including the Rochester Hills location, in May of 2014, and later a second Michigan location in Royal Oak, which has also closed. The restaurants feature signature burgers, such as the Lola (dressed with a sunny-side-up egg, pickled red onions and cheddar cheese), the Fat Doug (cole slaw, pastrami, mustard and Swiss cheese), and the vegetarian Impossible Burger. Scant details of the closing were available, but a note on the door of the restaurant stated, “We apologize for any inconvenience but B Spot Rochester is permanently closed.”
