Burger Meats Bun July 4th
Burger Meats Bun July 4th


Foodies and gourmet burger aficionados will be in for a treat when a new burger joint with Michelin star pedigree opens its doors in Edinburgh this summer. 

Following in the footsteps of its Glasgow restaurant, which launched in July 2013 and was crowned 'Best Burger in Glasgow'* in its first year, Burger Meats Bun will open in the capital on Friday 4th July at midday on Edinburgh's Forth Street.

The award winning burger bar is the brainchild of friends Ben Dantzic and James Forrest, who met working at the renowned, Michelin-starred, Peat Inn in Fife.
Burger Meats Bun in Edinburgh combines a cool, laid-back and rustic interior with an ethos of sustainability, using only the finest ingredients from Scottish artisan suppliers and producers including The Aberfoyle Butcher, Gartmorn Farm and cheesemonger George Mewes.

The menu is simplistic, focusing on freshness and quality rather than quantity of options, and specialising in burgers made from the best Scotch beef and slow grown, organic chicken.  

The drinks list also stays true to the Burger Meats Bun philosophy, offering a range of quality and interesting specially sourced alternatives to the usual suspects.  Happy Chappy Pale Ale from Cromarty Brewery, north of Inverness will be available - a stunning handcrafted ale not found in many eateries and watering holes around Edinburgh.  Seasonal beers from West Brewery will also be available throughout the year.

Director and Manager Ben Dantzic (29), who has worked in a selection of Michelin-starred restaurants and was most recently the Manager at Restaurant Andrew Fairlie in Gleneagles Hotel before opening the first Burger Meats Bun in Glasgow in 2013, said: “Burger Meats Bun fuses high quality produce and mouth-watering recipes with a cool interior and atmosphere to offer a brilliant, yet accessible culinary experience.  We're really pleased with how the concept has been received in Glasgow in the last year and are now excited to be expanding our business and bringing it to Edinburgh."
Director and Head Chef James Forrest (31) who has worked as a chef in Etain and The Peat Inn, added:  “From our experience working in the fine dining sector with some of the best chefs in the UK, we noticed a real gap in the market for a casual concept, using first-class ingredients and making everything from scratch, and Burger Meats Bun does just that. We hope that Edinburgh foodies will enjoy it as much as our Glasgow customers have."

Burger Meats Bun will open on Friday 4th July at midday on 1 Forth Street, Edinburgh - a year to the day since it opened in Glasgow.
