Le Bun to start five-week residency at The Zetter


On November 12, Le Bun will be taking over the restaurant and bar at The Zetter in Clerkenwell to launch ‘Le Bun at Le Zetter’ for a five-week residency.

Until December 20 2015, Le Bun will offer new exclusive dishes alongside their signature American street food spin on French classics from the boutique hotel’s restaurant.

Le Bun will also transform the restaurant space in a neon-filled, luxuriant diner, complete with vintage televisions, boomboxes, cinema projectors and VHS players.

Founded by Andy Taylor and Tim Talbot, Le Bun has been steadily gaining a solid reputation in the industry, serving twists on familiar dishes and giving French ingredients the American diner treatment.

The company has been appearing in various locations throughout the UK and had a hugely successful summer season, popping up at Wilderness, Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival and British Summer Time in Hyde Park.

Once Le Bun begins its residency at The Zetter, diners can expect some old favourites on the menu as well as a selection of new exclusive dishes including Philly cheese steak and duck fries poutine.

The weekend will see a special Le Bunch menu being served, with Le Benedict bun, truffles ‘n’ waffles and pig cheek hash appearing on the menu.

Every weekday from 3pm to 6pm, Le Bun will also promote the ‘Apéro Afternoons’ and offer guests a selection of drinks and food at discounted prices.

The pop-up residency will mark the first complete Le Bun experience, before the French American duo look to open their first bricks and mortar site next year.

The Zetter has its roots in French cuisine, previously being home to the popular Bistro Bruno Loubet since 2010, before chef Bruno Loubet replaced the eatery with a Grain Store pop up for a limited time.
