I have been to a few of these new “gastro” burger places and have enjoyed most of them. In Newcastle overnight for a meeting the next day, myself and a colleague from work were looking for a place for a bite to eat. We chose Byron.
We were given a warm welcome from the staff and given a really nice table by the window. It’s quite a large place and for a Tuesday night I thought it was quite busy. It’s a relatively smart décor combined with a warm atmosphere made it quite a pleasant place to be on a cold wintery evening.
Looking over the menu, I decided that I didn’t really fancy beef or chicken, so went with one of the vegetarian options.
This was a grilled Portobello mushroom, with goat’s cheese, roasted red pepper, baby spinach, tomato, red onion and aioli. Served in a squishy bun.
I had it alongside some fries and the house salad.
The burger was nice and full of flavour. The combination of ingredients worked well and it was very tasty.
The fries were crisp, hot and fresh, maybe a little too much salt, I prefer my fries without salt.
The salad was a nice simple salad, alas it was overdressed, I would have preferred it with the dressing on the side.
Overall a really nice meal, great service and nice environment. It was quite a limited menu, it’s just burgers, but if you are looking for a burger then why not have a look.
