Rabid superfans of Superiority Burger: Get your camp-out tents ready, because any day now the team may be opening its doors. The restaurant, which is relocating to the former home of neighborhood staple Odessa diner this season, put up “coming soon” signage this week, according to EV Grieve. In recent weeks the restaurant has hinted at the new menu posting desserts, tea sandwiches, and hippie wraps. The restaurant will be much bigger than the original outpost on East Ninth Street. “I find it completely beautiful — the soda counter, the satellite bar, the cash register station. I don’t plan to change it at all,” said owner Brooks Headley in an interview with Grub Street back in 2021.
