Squaremeal Review of Burger and Lobster City ?

Touting glamour on a budget, this barnstorming mini chain from the brains behind the Goodman steakhouse group has become a ‘must-try' for London's ever-curious foodies. Each venue delivers exactly what it promises, but banished is the chalk board menu advertising these three things. There are now two varieties of burger, The Mayfair and The Original, starting at a much more agreeable tenner. Lobster-wise,The Original remains intact (but slightly more expensive) and you can now pick your poundage, starting with a new, smaller 500g. Don’t panic, there are still the same buttery, toasted brioche lobster rolls with a lick of wasabi mayo (with chips and salad thrown in). The best advice: go with a couple of friends, order the whole lot and share the spoils – although the burgers in particular can be underwhelming. Service is quick and polished, while the setting is a cool mix of wood panelling, bare brickwork and close-packed tables, with some desirable red leather banquettes thrown in. You can book, but there are always queues anyway.

    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.
