It’s a brave move. Some would call it foolhardy. But Patty & Bun’s new bricks and mortar opening — on April 17 — is opposite the busiest McDonald’s restaurant in the UK. The street food burger joint have chosen London’s Liverpool Street for their second site after their first site, a 30-cover restaurant just off Oxford Street, opened to plaudits in November. With a product that those in the know rate as one of the best burgers in the business, the Big Time beckons. With Scott and Yianni at MEATLiquor planning their next opening — in Leeds — and Honest Burgers rolling out everywhere, there’s never been a better time to get a decent fist of meat on the streets of Britain. Everyone’s getting involved. And here. But can a restaurant ever really match a top-drawer street burger like this? Patty & Bun think so — if you need convincing, their opening day offer features 1000 free burgers.
