4 out of 5 stars

The first bricks-and-mortar shop from a popular street-food burger outfit.

There are two kinds of burgers in this world: the posh kind (neat, relish-y, found on gourmet pub menus) and the fairly dirty kind (juicy, greasy, found on ‘Man v Food’). Oh, and there’s a secret third kind. The Bleecker. It’s pure filth.

Don’t get me wrong – that’s a compliment. Made with rare-breed, dry-aged beef, there’s no compromise on quality here, and Bleecker has definitely honed its craft. It put in years building mad hype on the street-food circuit before opening this, its first bricks-and-mortar shop. There’s no bullshit about these burgers; they’re just bun, cheese and killer pucks of meat.

Take the award-winning ‘Bleecker black’: two pink patties sandwiching a slice of black pudding. The beauty of this burger is its intensity – you can really taste the metallic tang of blood in that pudding. It’s not for the faint-hearted.

In fact, the only thing that stops the Bleecker black from being totally life-changing is that it’s almost monotonously rich; serious carnivores might disagree, but a bit of salad or sauce would give it a welcome lift.

The same goes for the bacon cheeseburger. It was an oozing, meat-eater’s dream, but definitely benefitted from zingy dollops of ketchup and mustard. Bleecker’s ‘angry fries’ are an ideal accompaniment – drizzled in blue cheese and hot sauce, with a serious zesty punch. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, don’t miss the soft-serve vanilla and Valrhona chocolate milkshake.

Given the inevitable, crippling post-scoff food coma, you should come hungry and eat fast. The space isn’t exactly cosy: all black walls and ’00’s R&B, there’s just 12 stools inside – perfect for luring you in, and then kicking you right back out again. It’s quick and dirty – just the way I like it.

Been to a few of the Bleecker Street outlets already but this has to be one of my favourite ones. The staff are extremely friendly and personable, despite how busy they are! The venue is a little small, but turnaround is so quick and people are always willing to share a table (burger camaraderie eh?) so there should not be much of a wait. The venue is one of the best for a pre-theatre or post-theatre meal as well. The standard is as good as any of the other outlets so this is definitely one of my go-to venues.

Juicy oozy cheeseburger with fries and a niiiice cold IPA… lovely way to end EVERY stressful work day.


Juicy well tasty are the Bleecker Burger, from a normal one to a Bleecker Black, you cant do anything wrong. I had all of them and will always come back if I am craving a great Burger. The Brioche is fluffy, the patty is juicy and has great flavours and the bacon and cheese are just great cross and melty. If you want it a bit more special with the Bleecker Black the Black Pudding is outstanding all together. I love their range of beautiful choose beer and lemonades, they fit perfectly to the whole experience. 


Great burgers - simple but tasty. Very small shop so don't go with a big crowd. Try the angry fries (with blue cheese and hot sauce), they are yum.

It’s fair to say that I had very high expectations for this place after having been named the No. 1 burger in London by TimeOut, so much so that I went out of my way to visit it.  And am I glad that I did!  The burger was fantastic and so succulent - my only criticism being that it wasn’t bigger!  The burgers are cooked medium rare (more on the rare side of medium rare) and this may not be everyone’s taste, but I loved it.  The real revelation though, were the angry fries and I thought these were amazing!  If you like burgers, this is a must!
