Burgers and beer coming to St Martin’s

October 10, 2014

More signs of life on the Leicester eating out scene with news of a pop-up collaboration between St Martin’s Tea and Coffee and chef Chris Elliman of Crafty’s.

The two businesses are taking inspiration from the likes of The Smokehouse and Byron to run a burger and craft beer pop-up at St Martins on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from the end of October for six weeks.

A special blend of beef is being dry-aged by Woods butchers of Clarendon Park which will be handmade into a range of burgers which, it is promised, will showcase the best of local produce. Leading the pack in tasting tastes is El Gordo featuring a beef patty, pulled beef  chilli, Red Leicester, jalapenos and smoked chilli ketchup, all in a brioche bun with pickles. All burgers and fries will cost under £10.

“We’re excited about kicking off Crafty’s in St Martin’s- a cool venue with a similar ethos to our own,” said Chris Elliman. “We both want to offer something unique to Leicester and encourage people to support local suppliers and try something a bit different.”

Andy Hall of St Martin’s said that this “short blast of creativity” fitted his company’s ethos perfectly, adding  “Collaborations between independents are so important for a vibrant Leicester.”

Further details of discounted soft opening nights and how to book will be out soon on social media via @stmartinscoffee and @craftyburgers and their Facebook pages.

    Ha, news travels fast! I only helped set up the kitchen at the smokehouse, although I’ve worked for those guys for years, predominantly at the pig and butcher. Inspiration is more from the likes of Honest, Meatliquor, dirty burger, lucky chip etc.. Come on down and try us out.
