The rapidly growing sustainable, fast-casual restaurant chain focused on gourmet, all-natural Angus beef burgers has opened in Woodbury.
The BurgerFi, at 8063 Jericho Tpke., in the Woodbury Marketplace shopping center, is the first of eight BurgerFi restaurants planned for Nassau County by Brooklyn businessman Paul Lombardozzi.
The restaurant’s ribbon-cutting ceremony took place recently with Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Nassau Legis. Judy Jacobs participating. The eatery opened its doors to the public on June 14.
BurgerFi features a made-to-order menu of all-natural, farm-raised beef, specialty hot dogs, fresh-cut French fries, hand-cut onion rings, frozen custard desserts, natural cane sodas and craft beer and wine.
“BurgerFi is going change the way Long Islanders think about hamburgers with our farm-to-tray approach,” said Lombardozzi. “Our hamburgers offer the flavor and tenderness that diners have come to expect in a fine steak.”
BurgerFi burgers are made from all-natural Angus beef from cattle that are humanely raised, 100 percent antibiotic and hormone free, and sustainably farmed. Burgers are never frozen, never cooked in a microwave oven and are guaranteed fresh.
The made-to-order menu also includes a variety of specialty items, including Wagyu Kobe beef hot dogs, daily-prepared vegetarian quinoa burgers, hand cut fries and giant onion rings, a variety of specialty toppings, gluten-free options and frozen custards.
Each BurgerFi store is built according to environmentally sustainable best practices, and includes earth-friendly elements, like chairs that are made from recycled Coke bottles, tables made out of compressed recycled wood, and large fans that use 66 percent less electricity. BurgerFi maintains a low carbon footprint, and maintains strict recycling programs for oil, cardboard, bottles and cans.
