Blume Burger is set to debut this Friday, May 21, 2021, at 1500 Locust Street, in Rittenhouse Square neighborhood.
Blume Burger is a new concept and direction for the restaurant that has remained closed since March of 2020 when the pandemic hit. The big vibes, the flowering plants and the vibrant colors are back – and this time with over-the-top burger creations, boozy milkshakes, tasty sides, wood-fired pizzas and an eye-catching new streetery.
Executive Chef Steve Lindabury and his culinary team have given new life to the kitchen with a menu of comfort food and diner-inspired delights that are perfect for neighborhood foodies, returning workers, frontline workers at nearby hospitals, visiting tourists and those simply craving a feel-good meal during these challenging times.
Launch services include delivery, dine-in, pick-up, take-out, cocktails to go, indoor dining, outdoor dining, sidewalk seating and an extended streetery. Opening hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4:00pm to Midnight, with Sunday hours for online ordering only. After Memorial Day Weekend, look for additional hours and days of operation.
Blume is also hiring and seeking experienced and enthusiastic candidates who have evening and weekend availability.
“We are back with some of the things that made Blume so famous, but we are already evolving the decor to make Blume less about the bar scene and more about being a well-rounded neighborhood eatery with great burgers, amazing drinks and approachable vibes,” said Craft Concept Group owner Teddy Sourias. “In the coming months, look for some new Instagram and TikTok worthy elements to start to pop-up like a new mural, new interior art, a layout change and surprise details. Our goal is to get our staff back, the kitchen up and running, perfect our new concept in the kitchen, expand with delivery services, and then focus on the next enhancements of our space. We are in it for the long-haul and we are taking our time to do it right – but also making sure that we have a great process and environment for our staff along the way.”
Menu highlights include the carry-over top seller from Blume in the Avocado Sundae that is both delicious and is perfect for the gram with everything spice, creme fraiche, cherry tomato and balsamic reduction. Other shareables include Truffle Tots, Watermelon Salad and Smoked Mozzarella. For wood-fired pizza, look for Margarita, Pistachio, Spicy Pepperoni, Buffalo Chicken and Truffle. For burgers, Chef is firing up the Smash Burger, Pizza Burger, Truffy Burger, The Gabagool, The Impossible and The Fried Chick (fried buttermilk chicken thigh and smoked pickle with herby ranch on a brioche). Sides include sweet potato fries, tater tots, garden salad and caesar salad. Sweet stuff for the perfect ending to the meal includes churro chips inspired by Sueno, Milkshakes and Boozy Shakes.
