The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Bareburger, the Queens-based chain that specializes in burgers both sustainable and exotic, opens Tuesday at 5 p.m. in Great Neck. For now, only dinner will be served; lunch should follow in about a week.

Bareburger opened its first location in Astoria in 2009 and, over the next four years, 11 more sprang up in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. The restaurants have a hip, rough-hewn look and feature table service, beer and wine.

Half of the menu is devoted to burgers; the price range is $8.45 to $13.95. There are 14 styles to choose from (such as California, Maui Wowie, Smokehouse Portabella, Big Blue Bacon), or you can construct your own from a roster of buns, vegetables, cheese, sauce and patties.

And patties is where it gets interesting. Bareburger patties can be made from beef, turkey, quinoa-veggie burger, black bean burger, mushroom, buttermilk fried chicken, panko-crusted chicken tenders, grilled or jerk chicken, lamb (add $1.25), wild boar ($1.45), elk ($1.65), bison ($2.55) or ostrich (market price). All meats are free-range, pasture-raised, and antibiotic- and hormone-free.

There are also sandwiches ($10 to $13), salads ($11 to $14 for large; these can also be made into whole-wheat wraps), snacks, sides, breakfast dishes, organic sodas and milk shakes made ($4.95 for 12 ounces) with organic ice cream.

Bareburger is at 32 Middle Neck Rd., Great Neck.
