Voted the number one hamburger in New York, bareburger has finally spread its wings to the west coast. Right here on Main Street in Santa Monica, diners can enjoy free-range, pasture-raised, humanely raised, antibiotic,
gluten, and hormone free delicious burgers. The full bar makes it all the more enchanting! Sit down and enjoy an exotic cocktail like Charo's Kick ($10) a combo of tequila, mezcal, lemon, and orgeat (sweet maple syrup) or a Kiev Kooler Slush ($10) made with
vodka, limeade, and ginger. Check out the wine list; it's pretty impressive too. We like the Tiamo Pinot Grigio ($8/glass) and the Edge Napa Cab ($12). Draught beers are prety cool too. We love the "end of the world" Unibroue Fin Du Monde ($9) from Canada.
It's fruity and malty. Our favorite bottled beer is Almanac Azacca Hoppy Sour ($20) with a blend of kiwi and papaya on sour blonde ale. But it's the burgers we long for. Order a patty first. For $8.50 you get an all beef patty. For $1.35-$2.85 more get
adventerous with a bison, elk, wild boar, duck, or sesame ginger beef burger. Step two is choosing a bun. We love the onion brioche but you can make a collard green wrap if you're really looking to stay healthy! Choosing cheese from vegan cheddar ($2.80) to
colby, aged cheddar, blue, pepper jack, manchego, queso fresco, gouda, and pimento ($1.35) is your next big dilemma. For me the bacon process was the hardest. I picked brisket bacon ($3.85) which is similar to a pork belly. This thick slab literally made the
burger pop! Veggies are no added charge but exotic choices like stout onions will set you back $.75. Sauces and Spreads from mayo to tomato fig jam ($1.75) are plentiful. Sides include onion rings ($4.50), sweet fries ($4.25), and French fries ($3.50). Eight
different salad options are available and range from $10.95-$16.95. Try a Banana Foster Shake ($5.95) with vanilla ice cream, bananas, and caramel sauce for dessert! Bareburger 2732 Main Street Santa Monica (310) 392-2122 Hours: Sun-Thurs: 11:30 a.m.-10.m.
