They have restaurants north and south in Kentish Town and Battersea but now The Patate are bringing their French burgers to central London, opening in Covent Garden.
They're taking over a space that used to be a vegan cafe, so this is a bit of a change, for sure. If you're unfamiliar with them, the idea is to serve up burgers inspired by French cooking techniques. This is most evident in their burger which is a slow-cooked beef bourguignon patty, so it's something a little different from your traditional burger.
Outside of the burgers, which use raclette as the cheese, they also have mushroom, cheese and beef toasties and poutine (which, of course, mixes in more of that beef bourguignon). There's also the opportunity to add "crispy chicken crackling" to everything.
They seem to be on an expansion drive, so we might expect to see a few more Patates appear in the future.
