UPPER EAST SIDE — Diners hoping for a burger that won’t leave them feeling too unhealthy are in luck: another Bareburger opened uptown on Monday.
Known for its exotic burgers (wild boar, elk, or ostrich, anyone?), rich shakes, and emphasis on locally sourced food, Bareburger has long been committed to organic and sustainable fare.
At the new location at 1681 1st Avenue, diners can look forward to all sorts of enticing menu items, like the “Western” burger, which includes smoked mozzarella, country bacon, house-made Carolina slaw, smokehouse sauce, and spicy pickle.
Lighter burgers like the “California” – topped with sharp cheddar, hass avocado, watercress, tomatoes, and red onions – are also available.
Bareburger has an attractive salad selection, too: check out the “Poached Pear” salad, laden with baby arugula, goat cheese, toasted almonds, port wine poached pears, and drizzled with organic olive oil and cinnamon pear infused balsamic vinegar. And vegan and gluten-free diners will not be disappointed by the Bareburger offerings.
Bareburger was founded in 2009 by Euripides Pelekanos, and, from a startup in a Brooklyn bar, quickly became a “micro-chain” spread across New York City. The new 1st Ave. location is the joint’s 14th spot in the city.
And 1st Ave. isn’t the only Bareburger location to be opening up: new sites are expected far beyond New York City, from Boston to Philadelphia and beyond.
