The Joint – the pop-up-turned-permanent restaurant famed for its pulled pork burger – has opened a second site.
The US-inspired BBQ spot has taken over the Marylebone premises in New Cavendish Street which were previously home to short-lived burger bar SLABS. It appears that this high-end burger restaurant, poorly reviewed by many including the Standard, just wasn’t doing the same business as nearby Patty & Bun or Tommi’s Burger Joint – recognisable by their always present queues of patrons. The fact a wagyu beef burger at SLABS came in at nearly £20 possibly didn’t help either.
Prices at the Joint are a lot easier to digest (£8.50-9.50) for their buns and wraps of BBQ pulled pork, slow cooked chicken, short rib of beef and Asian-influenced pulled pork with ginger, chilli and spring onion. Downstairs is a 25-seater cocktail bar serving Thyme Collins and Figgy Ol’ Fashioned concoctions (£6.50), crafts beers and ales and a selection of South African and Australian wines.
The original Joint was founded as a temporary restaurant back in 2012 by Warren Dean and Daniel Fiteni. It now occupies a space in the foodie Mecca otherwise known as Brixton Market.
