Hawksmoor’s Limited Edition Christmas Burger

Holy moly… Christmas dinner (British style) in a bun…on a sleigh. The Hawksmoor Christmas burger is back as of 23 November, for a limited time. I would be remiss if I didn’t immediately point out the fact that there is no beef in this burger.  However, considering Hawksmoor is my favorite burger in London, I felt it…

Soho House’s Cafe Monico, Brasserie Burger

Cafe Monico is a recently-opened brasserie effort from Soho House, in collaboration with chef Rowley Leigh. Only a few blocks down from the original Soho House (which is under renovations until 2018), Cafe Monico is their new French-Italian brasserie concept, sitting on a piece of prime Shaftesbury real estate; across from China Town and not…

Flat Iron pt II – A Year Later

Last May, I wrote about Flat Iron as the best value steak in London. I had just visited their second restaurant on Denmark street just outside Soho.  Now a third, and largest yet, restaurant is open for business in the heart of Covent Garden – 17/18 Henrietta St, WC2E 8QH – proving once again that London’s desire…

Bar Boulud London, the Burger Review

Just a little disclaimer: while at Bar Boulud, I sat at the table next to Morgan Freeman.  It bears repeating, I SAT BESIDE AND ATE BURGERS NEXT TO MORGAN  FREEMAN!  I basically shared a burger with Morgan Freeman, it counts.  Okay, now that’s out of my system… Bar Boulud is just one outpost of renowned chef,…

Joe Allen’s Best Buns in the Business

Joe Allen’s off-menu burger is perhaps one of the worst kept secrets in London’s burger scene.  It appears on so many London’s Best Burgers top ten lists that it’s almost not even worth keeping it off-menu anymore.  The not-so-secret burger has got to be one of the most ordered items at Joe Allen’s West End…

How Does the Gaucho Burger Stack Up?

It takes a strong man to go to a great, Argentinian steak restaurant and order the burger.  It’s power of will over instinct and desire.  It’s the same amount of willpower that one has to muster up to order the Hawksmoor burger or the Goodman burger at those steak joints.  But, I’m just the man…
