Restaurant serving deconstructed burger asked to reconstruct it
A DINER has demanded a restaurant ‘do the right thing’ and put his ironic, deconstructed burger back together again.
The restaurant in Brighton served Stephen Malley its unique and witty take on an American classic with real aged Texan beef only for him to call the waiter back and request the kitchen ‘finish the job’.
He said: “You see these two beef patties? And these toasted sesame buns that you’ve served on the side? Arrange them into a cylinder for me.
“If we just leave the salad there on the other side of this vintage oar you’ve served it on, I won’t eat it, will I? So pop it in what we’re going to call ‘the burger’.
“And the cheese. There we go. Was that so hard? If I want to construct my own food I’ll construct beans on toast at home.”
Head chef Tom Booker said: “Yeah. I don’t think he got it.”
