Renowned Chef Transitioning B Spot to Award Winning BBQ Restaurant, Mabel’s BBQ

Great minds think alike; they have similar ideas, thoughts and typically gravitate towards the same goals. In the case of Michael Symon Restaurants and Eton Chagrin Boulevard, that phrase reigns true. With a commitment to evolving and growing together, Michael Symon Restaurants will be opening their award winning, finger licking and mouthwatering concept, Mabel’s BBQ, this Summer in their former B Spot Burgers location at Eton Chagrin Boulevard. The concept will fill a void in the community for good, authentic “Cleveland” BBQ and introduce new experiences including a BBQ + Bourbon club environment.

“Our love of Eton and our partnership with Bob and Ezra Stark and the entire team runs deep, and we are thrilled to continue to grow together with them,” said Doug Petkovic, Partner of Michael Symon Restaurants. “Our Mabel’s BBQ concept is ideal for the East side community, and we are excited to introduce the restaurant and all it has to offer this Summer!”

Mabel’s BBQ is a restaurant unlike any other, combining a rustic smokehouse with a laid-back vibe, from the interior to the recipes, Cleveland pride is woven into the fabric. The menu revolves around Symon’s special barbeque sauce made with local Bertman’s Ballpark Mustard and European spices and smoking their meat over local fruitwood; options include brisket, pork, ribs, and more with side dishes, desserts, a full bar menu complete with signature cocktails and more. The aesthetic and interior of the restaurant will follow the original concept on East 4th Street with arch ceilings, industrial lighting, and exposed brick to resemble the nostalgic West Side Market, which will be led by the interior designer, Scott Ricardson and architect, Richard Lalli.

“Our 15+ year partnership with Michael Symon Restaurants has been such a thrilling and fun journey, seeing fellow Cleveland born companies thriving and celebrating each other’s successes and working together,” said Lidia Richani, Executive Vice President of Leasing for Stark Enterprises. “After seeing excitement and popularity around Mabel’s BBQ on East 4th Street, and being regular diners ourselves, we knew that evolving together meant introducing this creative concept to the East side of Cleveland. We are looking forward to the future ahead with Michael Symon Restaurants, it sure looks bright!”
