It was only a matter of time before the smashing success of organic burger joint and family fave Mooburger got some serious competition. Serving up organic, specialty burgers and fare since fall of 2011, Mooburger is perennially packed with everyone from screaming babies to moustachioed hipsters, and soon, just a few blocks down the block at 145 Court St., Bareburger will be giving it a run for its money. Literally.
As you can see from the pic (left) the lights are on, though nobody’s home. A quick Google search showed us the history of Bareburger–a “micro-chain” which began in a Brooklyn music venue’s basement with locally sourced, organic burgers and snacks. Now open in several locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, Cobble Hill will be its newest stop. From the website, it looks eerily similar to Mooburger, though I don’t see zucchini sticks or fried mac n cheese. They do, however, add a buttermilk fried chicken burger to the mix. Also expect salads, sandwiches, sides, beer and wine. And a good mix of children’s meals. There’s no prices online, so we’ll see if that is also comparable. Projected opening is “Spring” so looks like we won’t have to hold out too long to do a little taste testing.
