The Founders Of Bareburger Launch New-Sustainable BBQ Concept In Astoria

When searching for the perfect location for his new concept Salt & Bone Smokehouse, Bareburger CEO & Founder Euripides Pelekanos kept going back to one place - home.

Eight years ago the quintessential New York City neighborhood of Astoria embraced the forward-thinking-all-sustainable Bareburger. 

So when the boy-from-Queens needed a location for his newest labor-of-love, the decision was obvious.

Just like Bareburger, Salt & Bone Smokehouse, located at 32-07 30th Ave., was opened with community and sustainability at its core.

Local partnerships with Hifi Records, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, and a small pop-up shop in
Singlecut Brewery have already given the Smokehouse deep ties to the neighborhood.

To achieve Salt & Bone’s goal of being as sustainable as Bareburger’s now 45 locations,
Euripides brought on fellow Astoria-native Spiro Koroudes.

Spiro made a name for himself at the James-Beard -Award-nominated Delany’s BBQ in Brooklyn.

“When EP came to me and told me that he was going to create an all-sustainable-authentic barbecue joint I started laughing. When he didn’t laugh back, I realized this guy was dead serious and the only thing I could say was - let’s do it,” said Koroudes about his decision to join the team as Pitmaster.

After a year of development, these two Astoria kids had a menu with a sourcing list that reads
like a local weather report. Meats from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, all coming
together in Queens to be slow-smoked, treated and eaten the way properly-grown food should
be. Once again this neighborhood has a new-sustainable restaurant; poised to make it big like
its big Bareburger brother.
