Patty & Bun Secures First Permanent Restaurant in W1
October 24, 2012
Burger entrepreneur Joe Grossman has secured his first bricks and mortar restaurant site for his roving pop up burger concept, ‘Patty and Bun’. The restaurateur has secured a 30-cover restaurant unit at 54 James Street, which forms part of St Christophers Place estate, from landlords F&C Commercial Property Holdings Ltd.
Patty and Bun has already enjoyed success over the last 6 months at the Doodle Bar in Battersea and Endurance pub in Soho, and will now transform the 1,377 sq ft site, formerly home to Stockpot, with plans to open for business in November.
Patty and Bun operates a no reservations policy for its lunchtime and evening destination, and orders will be accepted for takeaway. Popular menu items including the ‘Ari Gold’ cheeseburger and ‘Jose Jose’ chilli burger have seen further development with the help of Mark Jankel (founder of the popular Street Kitchen street food concept). There will also be weekly specials.
Joe Grossman, Patty and Bun, said, The menu is focused on bringing the Best of British in line with simple and quality ingredients’ Grossman said. ‘We are working to adapt the space to create a vibing, individual neighbourhood joint in an area predominantly dominated by chains.
Tracey Mills, Director of Development Leasing at Davis Coffer Lyons, said: This part of the West End is proving remarkably popular for up-market burger chains this year – Patty and Buns signing now completes the golden triangle alongside MEATliquor and Tommi’s for burger buffs in the West End. It is prime example of how pop-ups are proving a fantastic way for operators to trial new concepts and see the reaction from consumers before considering a permanent site.
