Bareburger Moving its East Village Location to Hell Square

Posted on: January 25th, 2018 at 4:35 am by

Looks like Bareburger is headed for the Lower East Side. Hell Square, more precisely. The local burger chain has sights on 173 Orchard Street, the former home of the departedA Casa Fox.

Bareburger appears on the February SLA docket for Community Board 3, and is applying for beer-wine license contrary to what’s listed on the agenda (in an over-saturated area). It’s sandwiched between Rosario’s Pizza and the forthcoming Una Pizza Napoletana.

If approved, 173 Orchard Street would be the first burger joint for the brand within the confines of Lower East Side proper. Moreover, we’re told that the East Village location on Second Avenue is moving here.

Since its Astoria debut in 2009, Bareburger has amassed more than two dozen locations scattered across the Tri-State area (and the country).

A Casa Fox, one of the only Nicaraguan restaurants in the city, closed last July after 9 years at 173 Orchard Street.
