Bleecker to open London Victoria restaurant

Pop-up burger stall Bleecker is to open its first permanent restaurant, in London's Victoria.

The new restaurant will launch next year in what was previously the Cornish Bakehouse on Victoria Street. It will sit almost directly opposite Shake Shack, which is launching in the new Nova development across the road.

Bleecker's founder Alexandra "Zan" Kaufman has lodged an application for a licence for the new venue with Westminster Council. The new permanent home of Bleecker is expected to open seven days a week from 11.30am until 11pm. It is not yet known how many seats the site will have.

Kaufman discovered her passion for burgers in Zaitzeff in New York City's East Village and in 2012 bought an old van and converted it into a food truck, naming her new venture Bleecker after her favourite place in Manhattan.

In 2015 Bleecker opened its first permanent kiosk in Spitalfields market, having had pop-ups across London.

The independently owned business has twice won Time Out's London's Best Burger award in 2015 and 2016.
