There were two old threads about what was going to happen to Hassan Bro's: here and more recently here.

Well here's the answer, "Rossi's SE1 Burger" coming soon..



They've been cleaning out the old kit into trucks and the posters went up today.

I hope Hassan is ok! I did see him only 2 weeks ago walking down TBR.

Rossi is Italy's most common surname: I wonder if there will be an Italian twist to their burgers.

Pasta?

Until Honest Burgers opened relatively recently on Southwark Street, the whole gourmet burger trend had somewhat passed SE1 by. There is still room for many more, so if Rossi's Burger is up there with the city's best, then I'll certainly be a regular customer (I live less than a minute's walk away). I do wonder, though, if it's connected to Cafe Rossi on Borough High Street - maybe a bit of bandwagon-jumping on their part?

The gourmet burger trend has definitely not passed SE1 by - try the amazing PFQ burger from Prairie Fire BBQ at Mercato Metropolitano.

I second this. Best burger in the area

Looking forward to seeing what Rossi's will bring (hopefully Rossi's ice-cream as well!)

I was more upset about Tower Bridge Kebab going, always thought they were pretty decent

I suspect anyone expecting this to be a gourmet burger establishment is about to be terribly disappointed.

Am I the only one who thinks the Rossi is a reference to Francis Rossi of Status Quo whose family (reputedly) used to run the premises. Was he not supposed to have been born there?

I think you're right, Marcus - here's a picture: http://transpont.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/bermondsey-mods.html

If itís related to Rossiís kebab shop on Borough High Street then Iím afraid the word Gourmet is not a word that I would associate with it. I hope that Iím proved wrong and that this will be a welcome addition to the TBR food scene.
