They started as street food before opening up their own restaurant in Brixton, have a space in Boxpark Shoreditch and now Black Bear Burger are growing again. This time they're opening a restaurant in Exmouth Market.
Taking over what actually used to be a Dirty Burger (albeit launching with a complete redesign of what was there before), this is going to be bigger than their Brixton place so we can expect a few new dishes on the menu.
For burgers, there will be the Black Bear Burger (dry-aged beef, cheese, smoked bacon, onion jam, garlic mayo) and the Brisket Burger (which adds their 12-hr beer-braised brisket) as well as chicken and vegan burgers. Alongside those will be brisket spring rolls (filled with brisket, smoked bacon and cheese), smoked pork tacos and more. And the meal finishes with custard-based soft serve on the house.
Co-founder Stew Down grew up on a beef farm in Devon, so there's a big focus on grass-fed, dry-aged, British beef. And as for the drinks, they'll have cocktails (barrel-aged Negroni and Maple Old Fashioned), beers and low intervention wines.
