Happy Lunar New Year from the Barneys team! Today also marks the launch of Freds’ third exclusive designer-collaborative burger—this time with Alexander Wang. The uniquely curated ingredients are a nod to Wang’s Chinese-American heritage, and it features Chinese five spice short rib tossed with fresh scallions and is served on a house-made Chinese-style bun. Freds’ signature fries also get a twist: lightly tossed in sesame oil, wrapped in nori, and topped with seaweed flakes. Dip in sriracha ketchup for maximum flavor. Pickled daikon and carrot slaw and cilantro leaves on the side complete the meal.
Guests get to take home their custom Alexander Wang chopsticks. There’s also an option to add a limited-edition Peach Palmer bubble tea from Boba Guys for an additional charge—even spiked, if desired. As a final touch, the meal concludes with custom Barneys New York x Alexander Wang fortune cookies.
The exclusive burger will be available at all Freds at Barneys New York locations through mid-March. The meal is $35 and the boba tea add-on is $12 for the regular and $18 for the spiked version.
