French burger chain Big Fernand has crossed the channel, serving its hamburgers with a French twist.
Big Fernand has brought its hamburgés from France to London’s Percy Street. Famous for their super fast service (40 seconds from order to service), as well as their cool, quirky vibe, they are taking the American classic and blending it with French gastronomy.
Using artisan buns, locally sourced Charolais and Aberdeen Angus meat, unpasteurized French cheeses such as Tomme de Savoie, Raclette or Fourme d’Ambert, and home-made sauces created by Chef Thomas Boutin, customers can choose from five combinations, including beef, lamb, chicken and veal. Alternatively, they can build their own with over 3,840 possibilities.
Burgers are accompanied by Fernandines—home‐made hand cut French fries from potatoes peeled and sliced at the restaurant each morning. The drinks list features a red, white and rosé wine as well as beer.
The food is served by staff wearing retro‐style chequered shirts, berets and moustaches, and the opening marks the beginning of rapid expansion for the chain, with 20 further restaurants slated for opening globally this year.
