Bon appétit, excusez-moi, faux pas… We are all guilty of embedding phrases en français into our dialect now and again to make us sound a little bit chic and now The Zetter Hotel are getting in on the action, becoming Le Zetter for five weeks only. Pourquoi, you may ask? Well, street food burger favourites Le Bun have got themselves a slightly more permanent home and a five month residency at The Zetter in Clerkenwell.
Le Bun are adding a touch of neon to the eclectic interiors of the quirky boutique hotel. Vintage televisions and video players will be artfully placed to set the tone for burger eating – a lot of it. Old favourites sit on the menu alongside future favourites, all elevated slightly to suit the four star environment of Le Zetter. A quick look at the menu (OK, we’ve drooled over it for quite some time) confirms that we will be trying Duck “Fries” Poutine; confit duck and red wine gravy and Le Benedict Bun because combining eggs benedict with a burger is really quite genius. For the traditionalists, we give you Le Truffle Double Double; double truffle, double patty and double cheese. Wow.
Forget the pretentiousness of four star hotels, Le Bun at Le Zetter is a place of informal feasting. At the weekends, go for Le Brunch for bottomless prosecco and from 3-6pm on weekdays, “Apéro Afternoons” for discounted food and drink.
Five week residency from 12th November – 20th December at The Zetter Hotel, St John’s Square, 86-88 Clerkenwell Rd, Clerkenwell EC1M 5RJ
