BareBurger: A Burger Revolution

New York City is full of burger joints, but BareBurger stands alone in offering a fully organic menu. From the organic, grass-fed, free-range meats and poultry that comprise the actual burgers, to organic wine, beer, and even milk shakes in a variety of delicious flavors, all made with organic ice cream and milk.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Milk Shake (12 oz) $4.95

Dining at BareBurger will certainly leave customers feeling “greener,” and supporting a restaurant that serves sustainable, humanely-produced ingredients will not cost much more than dining at comparable restaurants serving factory-processed patties. Less traditional meats like bison, elk, and ostrich offer leaner options (with a surcharge), while turkey and veggie burgers are a solid choice for those who steer clear of red meat. Even those lightening their carb intake can indulge here by selecting an iceberg lettuce wrap in place of a bun, or perhaps a wheat wrap if you can't fully commit to a carb-free lifestyle.

Maui Wowie Burger in Lettuce Wrap - Smoked Mozzarella, Grilled Pineapple, Canadian Bacon, Fried Onions, Roasted Red Peppers and Ranch Dressing $11.35 (w/ Bison +$1.65)

Big Blue Bacon Burger on Multi-Grain Bun - Danish Blue, Sautéed Mushrooms, Grilled Onions, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Lettuce and Peppercorn Steak Sauce $11.95 (w/ Ostrich +$Mkt)

At BareBurger, you can custom design your meal. Many of the burger varieties are paired with suggestions for proteins, but the final choice is always yours. The burgers are served alone, but offer a variety of sides if you choose to indulge. The fries and onion rings combo is perfect for people who can't make up their minds. The fries are fresh cut and cooked in 100% peanut oil, and the onion rings are some of the crispiest I've had the pleasure of eating.

Fries and Onion Rings Combo $6.95 (comes with several sauces)

Clockwise from Top: Peppercorn Steak Sauce, Chipotle Ketchup, Curry Ketchup, Spicy Ranch, and BareBurger Special Sauce

There are also several side and entrée salad options for diners with more restraint than I. And if soda is your vice, then take solace in the fact that the sodas served at BareBurger are all-natural and use organic sweeteners. No high-fructose corn syrup here. Even the condiments are completely organic. While a meal at BareBurger does not necessarily skimp on calories (noshing on burgers, fries and milk shakes comes with a price), flavor and ethics are never compromised.
