As reported in April, New York-based Bareburger is headed to Chicago, and the chain finally announced its first location. Located at the epicenter of West Lakeview and Roscoe Village at 3355 N. Lincoln, the 2,985-square-foot space is the first of four planned Bareburgers in Chicago over the next four years.
Patrons can expect eco-friendly and reclaimed materials for the decor in alignment with the company's "green" ethos, which also focuses on non-GMO and all-natural ingredients for their build-your-own burger concept. The selection of meats includes the predictable beef and turkey alongside more exotic options such as wild boar, elk and bison, and all meats are free-range, grass-fed, and pasture-raised. Produce for toppings and salads comes from small local farms, with organic dairy featured in their range of premium milkshakes.
Expect the first opening next summer, Crain's reports.
