It is set to open on Covent Garden in early autumn.
The burger restaurant is the creation of the Brothers Wahlberg: film star Mark, Donnie, formerly of New Kids on the Block, and Paul, who is a dab hand at cooking.
Since 2011, the brothers have owned and operated Wahlburgers in 24 locations across the US and Canada. Now, the brand has already secured a prime location at 8-9 James Street and is planning to refurbish it this summer in time for an opening in early autumn.
The US menu is heavy on American classics, but with some more exotic fare like the Thanksgiving Turkey Burger and a range of sandwiches. The ‘Wahl sauce’ also makes a fair few appearances.
