If you've ever had a burger craving in Leicester Square, then the new takeover of nearby Leicester House by French/American bun masters Le Bun will be good news. As usual, expect a mash up of French and American cuisines with lots of new dishes based on recent research trips across both those countries. They're bringing the following to the table:
- Shrimp & Scallop Po Bun from New Orleans - shrimp and scallops basted with an shellfish bisque.
- Suckling Pig Bun from Lyon - Pulled Pig Shin, Charcuterie Jam and Trotter Hollandaise served in a Brioche Bun
- Hot Chicken from Nashville - Inspired by a recipe from renowned American chef Thomas Keller - Fried Chipotle Chicken Thigh doused in Nashville Hot Butter.
- Foie Gras Beignets from New Orleans - Pretty much what they sound like
And expect many of the usuals including the Bourguignon Bun, Le Duck Frites Bun and the Truffle Double Double. There will be new cocktails include the Smoked Noisette Old Fashioned, Tarte Tatin Moonshine and Calvados Jell-O Shots. PLUS - they'll be having a bottomless brunch at the weekends when the Truffles ‘n’ Waffles and Le Benedict Bun will be brought out.
