Bareburger Coming Soon to Downtown Columbus
Burger restaurants are one of the most recognizable and important cornerstones of any successful food town. Indeed, there seems to be more places to get a burger than just about any other type of eatery, so when Bareburgers decided to expand outside of their own very successful market to open a location in Columbus, the question had to be asked: what’s so special about Bareburgers?
Bareburgers offers a variety of organic burgers and sandwiches, salads, shakes, and snacks in an environmentally-sustainable and eco-friendly atmosphere. The name itself is derived from the concept: “bare” because the ingredients used are free of hormones, pesticides and other unsavory elements, and the “burger” is the house specialty.
The idea for Bareburgers was born in Brooklyn, NY in 2002 when owner Euripides Pelekanos, who was then working at nightclub Sputnik, dared to go outside the box for burger and snack creations to serve hungry guests. The idea caught on, and in 2009, the first Bareburgers opened in Brooklyn. Now, there are twelve Bareburger joints across the state of New York, and Pelekanos and his crew are ready to spread the love.
“We’re thrilled to expand into the Columbus market,” shares Pelekanos. “[This will be] one of the first Bareburger restaurants outside of New York. We are looking forward to offering a new, sustainable, and above all else, delicious dining experience to our new neighbors.”
The choices offered by Bareburger are vast, exotic, and locally-sourced, all elements that the Columbus populace has responded to positively in the recent past. Their burger options run the gamut from standard beef, turkey, and veggie to unconventional elk, wild boar, and ostrich.
They also offer fresh salads, like the Pickled Beet & Goat Cheese, and hearty sandwiches, like the Brisket on ciabatta panini. They also serve breakfasts, organic smoothies, and have a full kiddie menu.
Bareburger will open at 463 North High Street in the old Yankee Trader building, across from the Columbus Convention Center this Fall, in roughly five to six months.
