SquareMeal Review of
Patty & Bun Goodge Street
Burger entrepreneur Joe Grossmann’s perpetually growing restaurant chain has landed on Goodge Street, taking over what was Fraq’s Lobster Shack. As with the other restaurants, the menu offers an affordable selection of handmade, British-bred patties in brioche buns, with comedy names ranging from Smokey Robinson, Ari Gold and Foghorn Leghorn chicken to Jose Jose (laced with chilli). A few garnishes, chips with rosemary salt and some weekly specials will complete the picture, and it’s worth looking out for collaborations with other outfits such as Pitt Cue Co. The booze list is short and sharp: cult beers, wines by the carafe, rum punch and a few funky cocktails. Expect queues for sit-downs and takeaways but if you like burgers, it’s “well worth the wait”.
