Rowley Leigh Rolls Out
the Carpetburger

For one night only the U-shaped oyster bar at Le Café Anglais will be transformed into a burger bar. The restaging befits the BurgerMonday rollout of the great chef Rowley Leigh‘s Carpetburger.

In truth the oyster bar will stay an oyster bar, as each Carpetburger contains an oyster. Leigh’s chosen name for his chopped-steak-on-a-bun alludes to the oyster-filled carpetbagger steak, a beef-and-bivalve classic. He’ll top your Carpetburger with anchovy mayo, capers and a fried oyster.

Because the oyster bar seats only 18, this BurgerMonday will unfold in a carefully choreographed rotation: You’ll take your salad at the tables facing the oyster bar, your burger at the oyster bar and your dessert at the bar lounge.
