Two former chefs at Brighton’s premier wine bar-cum-restaurant Plateau have reached the final 16 in Casual Dining’s National Burger Awards, proving their cookery is a well-marbled cut above the competition.
Will Dennard and Jack Southan’s Brighton burger kitchen Greasy Paws at the Mucky Duck on Manchester Street has just been open for a few months, but they are already well on their way to national acclaim. The menu also boasts pub favorites such as loaded chilli fries and a touch of the American South, with buttermilk biscuits and fried chicken making appearances.

Who loves bacon? We love bacon. We cure our streaky bacon in maple and smoked Maldon, cook it until crispy and caramelised and then pack it into one of our sauce heavy burgers – it’s God’s gift to carnivores. This particular burger (The Tennessee BBQ) has been selected as our signature dish at this years @nationalburgerawards and we’re super excited and grateful to be through to the UK’s final 16! Come see us in London on the 20th Feb or if you can’t wait that long get down to the @themuckyduckbrighton right now. We also have a very exciting burger announcement coming imminently! #roadtobestburger
The past year has seen the duo’s gourmet street food creations rapidly proliferate throughout Brighton; their menus include tacos (at Marwood Cafe), sourdough pizza (at Dead Wax Social), and bar snacks at the award-winning cocktail bar GungHo.
The finals will be held at Islington Metalworks on 20 February. With Wriggle, a burger and fries costs just 6.50 for lunch and 7.50 for dinner (from 18:00). Diners can also take advantage of a 2 for £12 deal on Tuesday evenings. While the beef is the star of this Brighton burger kitchen, we also love the chicken burger and the vegan option, a Korean bean patty with pickled jalapenos, lettuce, and pickled onions.
