JIMMY PELEKANOS
FOUNDER, BAREBURGER
Q: What inspired you to open the first Bareburger in Astoria? A: We wanted a place where the food was great and we could feel good about bringing our families. It was important that we know where the food was sourced and that it was fresh. After a few casual conversations, we decided to open the first location in Astoria and, as they say, the rest is history. Q: What’s your favorite restaurant in Astoria? A: I have quite a few, but the one I appreciate for its simplicity is Kyclades. They always have fresh fish and great service at a reasonable price.
