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.
Burger and Lobster generated a storm when it first opened in London with its simple menu, steal of a lobster and no booking policy. A few years down the line and over half a dozen branches later Burger and Lobster is still going strong and has become the go to place for a cut price lobster, this being my second visit.You know you’ve made it when impostors start popping up and many have tried to either hitch on the “(insert gourmet food) and (insert common food)” train or the lobster train, none have been as successful as Burger and Lobster.

I love small menus, as it makes it so much easier to choose what you want. Burger & Lobster go one step further, as they don’t even bother giving you a menu. There are only 3 choices: burger, lobster and lobster roll. We found out at the end of our meal that they recently introduced a 4th (!) option, the California burger (which substitutes the bread for lettuce as a healthy option). No matter what you choose, it comes with salad and fries and costs 20£.I’ve been hearing about this place from many different people for a while now, and then I finally planned an evening with my (newly named) restaurant...
