After a successful stint in August 2012 at a temporary site in Marylebone Street, Tommi’s Burger Joint has gone from pop-up to permanent, finding a new stable venue on 30 Thayer Street.
The intimate American-themed diner, which presently has 6 sites across Iceland, is the creation of Icelandic entrepreneur Tomas Tómasson, who has launched nearly 20 restaurants and hotels in his native Iceland, including the famous Hard Rock Cafe. The burger flipping in London will be led by Tommi’s head chef Siggi Gunnlaugsson, one of the group’s most senior chefs.
Just like before, Tommi’s will be keeping things nice and simple, with a menu purely offering a selection of burgers including a vegetarian option. Burgers will be cooked on an American gas grill to enhance the charcoal flavour, and embellished in the classic diner style with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, chopped onion and Ketchup. They’ll also be the essential fries, and homemade Béarnaise and cocktail sauces. Milkshakes will be a new addition to the menu, faithful to the American diner-style vibe.
