Bob & Mary
There are two Bob & Mary restaurants in Düsseldorf, one in the MedienHafen district and the other in the old part of the city. The concept might sound familiar, with a menu featuring novel burgers and fresh salads. So what is it that makes Bob & Mary so special? Over a period of 18 months, the makers travelled half way round the globe to find the recipe for the perfect burger and bring it to Düsseldorf.
Customers are treated to fresh, medium-cooked meat in light and fluffy brioche buns with only the best toppings in ‘smash burgers’. The meat is seasoned only using Murray River salt and aromatic Tellicherry pepper, while the salads are prepared with the best ingredients and a lot of love. The two locations have a streamlined yet extravagant interior and a lively atmosphere that make them very popular, not just with burger fans.
