Working in LA on the regular I became obsessed with the food of Southern California. I was inspired both by the colourful dishes that local chefs were brining to casual dining spaces and by the growing popularity of the simple smash burger. I had a clear vision: Creative buns, burgers and small plates under a name that sings “Southern California”!  (Search "Dog town & Z-Boys") and with my Wife Sheena we created Zephyr.


We obsess over how to deliver the best experience with each burger, focusing on the vital elements for ultimate enjoyment: soft & crunchy, juicy & creamy, balanced acidity with a slight sweetness, whilst also being a feast for the eyes.


Using street food as a vehicle to get noticed we quit our jobs in 2018 and rolled into running Zephyr full time. Starting with Kerb we quickly moved into pub residencies and on to festivals with a personal highlight

working with House of Vans at Bestival. We went onto run a Deliveroo Editions pop up in Dulwich which turned out to be the most successful that Deliveroo had EVER seen! This gave us a grounding on our home turf so in 2018 when we were offered a space at Peckham Levels we jumped on it!


Still going strong we have picked up some great recognition along the way including a 5 star review in the Evening Standard and being listed in Hot Dinners' Best Restaurants in Peckham for 2019.


You can grab a Zephyr 7 days a week at Peckham Levels or have it delivered to your door via Deliveroo. Also find us 7 days a week at our new residency at The Metropolitan in Westbourne Park!
