BurgerFi will open its doors for business on Monday, July 18 at 11am at 719 86th Street, on the corner of 86th Street and 7th Avenue.

The Dileo brothers, who have been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years and own neighboring restaurants Dyker Park Bagels and Annabelle’s Pastaria, told us they were excited to continue serving their neighbors.

“My brother and I look forward to serving the vibrant community of Dyker Heights and sharing our passion for high-quality ingredients in our hometown,” said BurgerFi franchise owner, John DiLeo. “We invite families to celebrate the summer season with our unrivaled better burger offerings made from fresh ingredients in a fun, family dining atmosphere.”
