An upmarket burger joint due to open this summer aims raise the steaks for Aberdeen's fast food scene.
Angus and Ale, owned by restaurateur Mark Cavanagh who also runs Fusion and No 1 Bar and Grill, will open on July 6 on Schoolhill between Haigs and Grub Fresh Food.
Serving up burgers made from beef dry-aged on the bone for at least 28 days along with homemade ketchups and chutneys, Angus and Ale aims to serve up quality yet affordable dishes to Aberdeen diners.
The burger joint will have seating for around 20 diners, with a range of options available from bar stools to tables.
The menu has been developed by Fusion and No 1 Bar and Grill executive chef Stevie Murray, whose aims to place a focus on quality rather than quantity.
Mr Murray said: "We’re not going to be doing burgers as well as hot dogs and mac and cheese or anything like that. Angus and Ale is all about the burgers, and doing them well. Customers these days are wary about what they eat and we've recognised the trend for burgers but want to do them better.
"We’re still developing the burgers, we start the cook offs soon to finalise the recipe, but we’ll have beef as well as a chicken burger and a vegetarian burger. We are also in the process of making up all our chutneys and ketchups."
The team is currently in talks with a few breweries, with Stevie hopeful Angus and Ale could serve local beers alongside its burgers.
Stevie added: “The interior is just fantastic, it’s really beautiful. It will have a relaxed, casual atmosphere and will operate on a first come, first served basis.”
The burger bar is currently recruiting staff ahead of its July opening, and it is understood at least ten jobs will be created.
