New York City — Bareburger, an award-winning restaurant specializing in clean comfort food, is celebrating its first decade in business. The restaurant is marking this milestone with the introduction of a location reflecting a refreshed design in the New York City neighborhood of Chelsea.
The new Chelsea location at 184 8th Ave. has been added to a growing list of more than 44 Bareburger locations around the world. The grand opening was December 4, 2019.
The new Bareburger location is stylish and environmentally responsible, with its interior doors and walls made with recycled materials. It also features wooden tabletops, refinished floors and plants scattered throughout. Across all Bareburger locations, the menu reveals a simplistic, black and yellow aesthetic, which allows the focus to be on each dish and Bareburger’s commitment to quality ingredients. Bareburger has continued to grow at a high rate, and Chelsea is among a number of locations that are set to open in and around New York City.
“As we approached our 10th anniversary and continue our expansion, we took the opportunity to reflect on where the brand has been and where we want to go,” says Euripides Pelekanos, Bareburger’s founder and CEO. “Bareburger is going beyond its menu to ensure the customer experience feels as fresh as our ingredients taste. We are always listening to feedback, and our refreshed menu and look and feel reflects what our customers want and need.”
Earlier in 2019, Bareburger shifted to a 50% vegan menu. While still focusing on the high-quality meats that it has become known for, Bareburger is now offering a variety of plant-based options including organic tempeh bacon, dairy-free cheeses, “eggs” from JUST and patties from both Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods. By making these changes, Bareburger has become one of the largest vegan restaurant concepts in the country.
Founded in 2009 in a vacant bakery in Astoria, N.Y., Bareburger has grown to 37 restaurants across the United States, with locations in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., Ohio and Georgia. For more information, visit www.bareburger.com.
