It’s time for Bristol’s latest burger restaurant to open! From 6pm on Friday, June 16th, Asado is coming to Colston Street to pair wood-fired burgers with the flavour of South America.

Named after the oak-fired asado grill on which the burgers are cooked, Asado is the brainchild of chef Lucien Gordon, who’s returned to Bristol after a stint at London’s Patty & Bun. The burgers themselves are made from a blend of cuts of beef from organic Devon farm Higher Hacknell, paired with South American flavours such as chimichurri for the Asado burger, pancetta BBQ onions in the El Don, chunky guacamole and chipotle mayo with a buttermilk fried chicken thigh in the Pollo Libre. On the menu, you’ll also find dishes such as spicy oak-grilled wings with pickled chillies and a coriander, mint and yoghurt dressing.

There will be seasonal specials, sides and vegetarian options such as the Señor Veggie – a buttermilk fried roasted red pepper and mozzarella patty served in a brioche bun with pesto mayo and salad. Rosemary chips, courgette fritters with spicy lime mayo, seasonal slaws and salads and puddings complete the menu along with a selection of classic and seasonal cocktails, beers and wines to pair with food.

Lucien, who has moved back to Bristol from London where he was a chef at the renowned burger restaurant Patty & Bun, believes the quality of the ingredients coupled with the flavour from the wood-fired grill will give the city’s burger fans a new taste of South America when it comes to one of Bristol’s favourite foods:

Expect your meal to be accompanied with a mixture of old school hip-hop, funk, Bristol bass music and Latin beats. At the back of the restaurant, a selection of works from local artists will be on show and available to buy.

There’s seating for 40 with a takeaway station at the front of the restaurant, where you’ll be able to enjoy burgers from 12pm to 11pm on Tuesday-Thursday, 12pm to midnight Friday and Saturday, and from 12pm to 10pm on Sundays.

Throughout the opening weekend, those choosing to dine in can take advantage of a special offer: order any burger from the menu for £5.

You’ll find Asado at no. 90 Colston Street – the former home of Rosemarino.
