The Bare Necessities

Bare Burger is a new addition to the Astoria landscape. While not the first, and possibly not the best, Bare Burger certainly is the most progressive burger destination in the area. The restaurant's physical space was constructed using sustainable, reclaimed and recycled materials. The eco-friendly digs must've cut into the bottom line, because the prices are a bit steep considering the services rendered. I suppose it's a small price to pay if you love the Earth.

Unless you hate the Earth. You don't hate the Earth, do you?

Bare Burger
33 - 21 31st Avenue
Astoria, NY 11106

The menu is largely organic and features an array of exotic meats such as, Piedmontese beef, ostrich, bison, lamb, and elk. I opted for an Elk burger w/ jalapeno jack cheese, lettuce-tomato-onion, and horseradish dill mayo. A well-constructed tower of flavor. One criticism, I ordered my burger "rare" but what I got was quite blatantly "raw". I'm talking purple & mushy raw. I'm talking Eddie Murphy raw.
