Allegra Restaurant launches Happy Burger pop-up to help London restaurants take advantage of its outside space

Chef Patrick Powell and his team at Allegra are launching a four-week pop up next month to enable London restaurants without outside space to take advantage of the Stratford restaurant’s rooftop terrace.

Called Happy Burger at Allegra, it will launch on 15 April serving a tight menu prepared by Powelli.Dishes will include the eponymous Happy Burger, an Oklahoma-style onion burger with American cheese; fried chicken with mustard fruit; half a dozen oysters with pickled seaweed mignonette; fried potatoes with beef chilli; a wedge salad; and a rhubarb and custard doughnut (£6).

In addition, on Sundays the restaurant will join forces with some chefs in the capital whose venues will remain closed until mid-May, when dine-in operations can resume, with each chef preparing a five-course menu on the seventh-floor terrace’s barbecue pit.

The first collaboration on 18 April will be with Newington Green restaurant Perilla, followed by Sertac and Ferhat Dirik of Dalston’s Mangal 2 on 25 April.

On 2 May chef Sebastian Myers, previously of P Franco, will serve a preview of dishes from his new restaurant and wine bar, Planque, which launches in Haggerston this summer. AngloThai’s John and Diz Chantarasak will run a service the week after.

“Once it was announced restaurants with outdoor areas could reopen in April, it seemed like a great opportunity to do something a bit different until we’re back operating fully again,” says Powell.

“Allegra means ‘cheerful’ in Italian, so while we wanted the pop-up to refer back to the restaurant, we also thought the name was rather apt having been closed for such a large part of the past year.”

Happy Burger at Allegra will operate from Thursdays (4pm) through to Sundays.
