There are few things more satisfying than the perfect burger after a long day (if such a thing exists).
Fortunately, Greenwich has plenty to offer on the restaurant front in the bun and patty department. Here are three to look out for.
The Byron ethos is to do one thing and do it well – that being proper hamburgers. Made using quality Scottish beef ground fresh every day and cooked medium, the juicy patties come in a squishy bun with a pickle on the side. The signature Byron burger is one of the best around, with dry cure bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion and their tangy Byron sauce. The decadent courgette fries are one of life’s great pleasures, and their craft beer list, uniquely served in cans for better quality and freshness, is comprehensive. Look out for the frequent specials that often steal the limelight.
Few things go with a pint of beer better than a juicy burger, and Meantime’s The Old Brewery has nailed both the burger and booze. Pair a refreshing London Lager with the Grilled Angus beef burger available at the bar and outside courtyard when the sun shines; this classic is served with tomato relish, mustard mayo and glassy-yet-fluffy hand cut chips, just as they should be. You can also add cheddar, smoked bacon or spicy coleslaw to top it all off. If you long for a taste of your childhood, go for the fish finger burger with tartare sauce.
Jamie's Italian opened on Nelson Road this time last year, serving an Italian-centric menu of fresh pastas, comfort dishes and sharing boards. It does, however, offer a burger that nicely melds Italian and British influences: prime British chuck and flank steak is topped with smoked mozzarella, mortadella, chillies, pickles, balsamic onions and tomato, all held together in a char-grilled bun. Order Posh Chips with truffle oil and Parmesan, or rosemary salt and Parmesan polenta chips on the side for a down-home dinner with a Continental twist.
