Street food burger bar to open 75-cover restaurant in Shoreditch

In the same week that one in five GBKs are to close, another street food pop-up has revealed plans to open its first bricks and mortar restaurant. Burger & Beyond (what else?) will open in Shoreditch (where else?) next month.

The 75-cover restaurant will feature an expanded menu, working in new dishes to bolster the high street offering. Though its hand-pressed, 45-day aged beef patty burgers, made with brioche buns and bacon, pepperjack cheese and tarragon mayo, will remain centre stage.

The burger concept currently operates from markets including Street Feast locations in Camden and Woolwich. Acclaim has been widespread. The brand is ready for somewhere permanent.

Directors Craig Povoas and Tom Stock said: “We are thrilled to be opening our first restaurant in Shoreditch. The location is perfect and the design brings our vision to life.

Premium burgers

“The restaurant will showcase a different side to Burger & Beyond while staying true to the foundations of our brand, something that is not always possible within the constraints of the street food market.”

Additional menu items will include bar snacks such as crispy chicken skin and bread with bone marrow butter, as well as small plates like rip cap with anchovy butter, and deep-fried lamb nuggets alongside a burnt onion dip.

And joining the basic menu of beef burgers – the limited range was one of its appeals, actually, given it did proper, simple burgers very well – will be the likes of fried hot fish with Nashville hot sauce, kaffir lime mayo, slaw and pickles; Rice Krispie-fried chicken with miso maple butter and pickle slaw; and mushroom raclette, which is made with a panko-crusted mushroom patty and served with melted cheese, caramelised onion, lamb’s lettuce and smoked garlic mayo.
