Head to Covent Garden’s GBK on Maiden Lane
“Feeling a bit peckish but don’t know what you’re in the mood for? We’re so spoilt for choice in London it’s hard to know where to start, so here’s a street full of restaurants to get you going – Maiden Lane in Covent Garden,” Eleana Overett writes in a piece for the Londonist, which includes the New Zealand-founded Gourmet Burger Kitchen.
“In 2001, New Zealanders Brandon Allen, Greg Driscoll and Adam Wills began what is affectionately abbreviated to GBK, with the help of New Zealand-born chef Peter Gordon,” Overett writes. “The idea was to give burgers the deluxe status they deserved, and it has succeeded with a menu that gives your regular BBQ joint a run for its money. Inspiration for their burger ingredients comes from all over the globe.
“Now, GBK is a burger empire with over 60 restaurants around the UK, one of which is located in Maiden Lane. Despite the original owners selling on GBK, the restaurants still retain a Kiwi theme.”
