Kelis to open pop-up burger restaurant in London

Kelis is opening a pop-up burger restaurant in London with “French American fine diner” Le Bun.

The musician’s menu will be on offer at Le Bun’s Leicester House restaurant for four evenings in July – 6, 7, 13 and 14 Jul to be precise. She’s due at a festival in Portugal on the last of those dates by the way, if you were wondering whether she might be there flipping burgers herself.

“I’ve been looking forward to bringing my cooking to London for years”, says Kelis. “This July I’m over for lots of festivals and it’s the perfect time to finally make this pop-up restaurant dream a reality. The Le Bun guys are the perfect partners and I can’t wait for everyone to have a taste”.

Oh yes, live dates. There are plenty of those. She’s got four nights at the Jazz CafĂ© in July in addition to those festivals, and her restaurant will be moving to the Standon Calling festival at the end of the month.

“I’ve been into Kelis’ music for years”, says Le Bun co-founder Andy Taylor. “It’s wicked that we see eye to eye on ingredients and I’m really excited to chef with her. I love what she cooks and it’s going to be great to collaborate on a totally unique pop-up”.

Will she be serving up her own milkshakes though? Probably not. But book a table here anyway.
