Byron partners with charity One Feeds Two ®Portfolio Insight
To celebrate the opening of their second Edinburgh restaurant, Byron will be offering diners hamburgers for 25p for one day only on Tuesday 24th May – all in support of Byron’s charity partner, One Feeds Two ®, which started life from an Edinburgh soup van.
Byron was founded by Tom Byng in 2007 with the mission of serving proper hamburgers like those he remembered fondly from his college days in the States – made from four cuts of properly sourced British beef, ground fresh and served in a squishy bun with minimum fuss and fanfare.
The menu, created by Head Chef Fred Smith, keeps things simple with a range of burgers, classic sides and homemade desserts, plus a regularly-changing special hamburger – currently a delicious football-inspired burger, the Byronaldo. The drinks list showcases Byron’s carefully chosen selection of craft beers, including Brewdog’s Dead Pony Club and 5am Saint, as well as bourbons, famously thick milkshakes, hard shakes, and craft sodas.
Tom Byng, Byron’s founder, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the warm welcome we’ve received since opening first Edinburgh restaurant on the corner of North Bridge and the Royal Mile, so we can’t wait to continue welcoming proper hamburger fans through the door at our second restaurant in the capital.”
Byron’s Lothian Road restaurant will create over 35 new jobs for the town, including roles across managerial, kitchen and front of house teams, both full and part time.
