Bare Burger (Astoria)

Can't comment on the meat offerings as I'm vegetarian, but I've been to this new organic burger joint in Astoria a few times over the past week and a half and I adore it.

You'll find it packed with young locals on any random evening, with a much more chill vibe during lunch time mid-week. The staff have all been friendly and accommodating and are eager to share their knowledge of the menu with you if you're a first-timer. Offerings are standard fast food fare, but at higher prices and of much better quality. I've had the veggie burger and the portabella burger and prefer the veggie. Fries are perfect and the dipping sauces are delish (especially the curry ketchup). A fun, not-so-healthy alternative in the nabe.

Two other things%3

1) I emailed the owners to see if they'd consider offering non-dairy milk shakes for the lactose-intolerant and vegan sets. They plan on doing that soon, as well as offering organic beer and wine in about three weeks once they get their liquor license.

2) My husband found a small piece of wood in his veggie burger during our last visit and brought it to the waitress' attention. His burger was quickly replaced, an order of onion rings was brought to our table and our entire bill was comped. An odd thing to pull out of a burger, and I'm sure it was a freak occurrence, but they handled it well and we'll definitely be back.
