Burger and Lobster City

Squaremeal Review of Burger and Lobster City ?

Burger & Lobster definitely takes some beating. There’s a winning simplicity to its eponymous offering of hand-minced corn-fed Nebraskan beef and fresh lobster from Nova Scotian waters. The menu is short, but no worse for it – unless you’re vegetarian, of course. Take your pick from meaty burgers (with extra cheese and bacon), juicy steamed or char-grilled lobster, and buttery lobster rolls in toasted brioche with a lick of wasabi mayo – each served with fries and a salad at pocket-friendly rates. Drinks call for slightly more protracted decision-making, with a mixed bag of wines, beers, fizz and food-friendly cocktails to consider. No reservations; a short wait is the price you pay for affordable luxury.

£20 for a burger is a pretty hefty sum of money so for that you would reasonably expect something that wows – succulent, juicy beef, spot on seasoning, an artisan brioche bun perhaps, and crispy, tasty chips. However, the reality is somewhat of a disappointment. Yes, the burger was juicy and succulent and perfectly cooked to medium rare, and yet it was all rather bland and textureless. It was almost as if it had been passed through the mincer too many times. But the real downer were the chips –...

    So, I'd been wanting to try Burger & Lobster since it opened last year. I was attracted to its simple premise of serving only three items on its menu: lobster (steamed or grilled), lobster roll, or a juicy burger, all for £20 each and served with a side salad and fries. You can also order individual lobsters by weight, which are displayed on a chalkboard above the bar - these are accompanied by never-ending fries and salads, apparently. How Olive Garden of them.

    Anyway, I occasionally have a serious hankering for lobster, being torn away from the Pacific Northwest and all that, where a measly 4 ounce lobster...

    Maybe it’s just me, but I thought the burgers served at Burger and Lobster would have, you know, both burger and lobster? Now that would be a burger combination.
    Quickly becoming a pet peeve when it comes to gourmet burgers in London (guide) is the size. I love receiving more than I paid for, but when it becomes too big to fit in my mouth and you have to eat with knife and fork, it ruins the burger experience!
    Burger and Lobster is a classier restaurant than your average burger joint so attempting with my mouth was out of the question.
