Bareburger, ranked #1 among hamburgers in New York City by the New York Post four months ago, is on schedule to open at 38 Danbury Road in November.

Bareburger serves organic, free range, pasture raised, humanely raised, antibiotic, gluten and hormone free, beef. For starters.

Not interested in beef? It serves turkey, farmers quinoa veggie burger, mushroom burger, ostrich, elk, bison, wild boar, lamb, buttermilk fried chicken, grilled or jerk chicken, and the free range, organic, pasture raised and on and on applies to those burgers, too.

The chain has 14 restaurants in Manhattan, Queens, Long Island and in Brooklyn.

"Part of the whole concept is to be environmentally sound and friendly," said Chris Sturges, a 2002 graduate of Ridgefield High School, and partner in the business with Truitt Bell and Don Sturges, Chris's father. "You're saying grass fed, hormone free, no antibiotics, and it starts to attract some serious attention in Ridgefield. People are interested."

The restaurant is under construction Wednesday, when workers were installing tile on the floors, recycled farm sidings on the walls and others were delivering coolers and other kitchen equipment.

The restaurant and bar will seat about 60 people and Sturges said by recycling the barn siding and other materials, the restaurant is keeping with its sustainable, environmentally friendly roots.

It is located in the former Chambers Army & Navy at 38 Danbury Road at the corner of Grove Street and the Danbury Road.

Good burger. Actually very good burger. Been to the one in the Village and on 34th and 3rd. But 25 dollars + for a burger it should be a good burger. Wonder how it does here. Wish them well----------

Surely you jest... $25 for a burger?

meant to say 25+ for the whole meal...not just the burger.

Sounds like a great NEW place to eat, but I remember the parking lot was TERRIBLE when it was Chambers.. I would park in the "OLD A&P" parking lot.. Where are the customers going to park?? It should be interesting to see if the new burger can beat THE ANCIENT MARINER'S or for the people that grew up in Ridgefield can it beat the RUSTY NAIL BURGER??? (I know the Nail has been gone a long time!!)
