Happy Burger at Allegra

Patrick Powell’s swanky East London restaurant is back this April with the Happy Burger at Allegra Pop Up. Sophia Savage reports.

With alfresco dining given the go ahead to commence from the 12th of April 2021, Patrick Powell’s super stylish Allegra restaurant have elected to relaunch with a fast food themed event called Happy Burger At Allegra.

The star of the show will undoubtedly be Powell’s new creation, the Happy Burger. An Oklahoma-style hamburger with American cheese and fried onion, the dish is inspired by an American classic which is a staple of diners right across the South Central region of the United States.

Joining Powell’s take on the burger on the menu will be Fried chicken (with mustard fruit, aioli and pickles) Fried fish sandwich (with tartare sauce and pickles) and Oysters (with pickled seaweed mignonette) with sides including fried potatoes with beef chilli and a wedge salad with buttermilk dressing, radish and cucumber.

Happy Burger at Allegra will launch on the 15th of April 2021 and run for just over a month, with the restaurant reopening for indoor dining on the 17th of May 2021.

Allegra are also launching a series of guest chef residencies next month, with teams from Perilla (18th April), Mangal 2 (25th April), Planque (2nd May) and AngloThai (9th May) taking part.

Each team will prepare a five course menu for Allegra’s guests using the 7th Floor terrace’s barbecue pit.

Allegra restaurant opened in 2019 to great fanfare in the restaurant industry. With an interior designed by the acclaimed Space Copenhagen team and with the team behind Chiltern Firehouse and the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel combining for the project, much was expected of the venue.

The restaurant has certainly delivered, too, with our Food Critic Peter Gray describing the venue as ‘an absolute triumph’ and the food as ‘an unadulterated joy’.
