Burger Village To Replace Cheeburger Cheeburger On 7th Avenue
Burger Village, 222 7th Avenue

We’re going from burgers to burgers on the corner of 7th Avenue and 3rd Street. Signage for Burger Village has gone up on the space at 222 7th Ave, which has been under construction pretty much since the day Cheeburger Cheeburger abruptly closed at the end of July.

Coming Soon: Burger Village

This will be the second location for Burger Village, which already has a spot in Great Neck, Long Island. They tout fresh and organic food, noting on their website that their “products do not come from a factory, they come from farms and dairies that are mostly family owned and operated.”

The menu shows a lot of that, noting what’s all-natural and and what’s organic, etc. Burgers start at $9, and go up to $13 for ostrich — they also have veggie versions.

The reviews on Yelp are overwhelmingly positive, and it seems like a lot of people do indeed order the more unusual burgers they offer, like elk. The onion rings also have a lot of fans.

But how will that concept work with Bareburger, which is pretty similar (and quite popular), just a couple blocks away? And if another burger joint couldn’t make it in this spot, can a new one do better? Guess we’ll have to wait and see — though we are looking forward to those onion rings.

Maybe we were wrong about this being the year of the taco in Park Slope. Between this and Shake Shack, are we looking at 2014 as the year of the burger?
