Please note, Burger and Lobster’s menu is now full a la carte and prices have changed. Time Out Food editors, January 2018.
This Leicester Square branch of Burger & Lobster is set over two floors and swishly laid out, with plump red banquettes to effuse its proximity to China Town.
Born from the minds of four schoolmates on a rooftop in London, this restaurant chain grew from a pop-up in a Mayfair boozer to ten branches London-wide, and more to boot around the the world.
In case the name isn't enough of a hint, these guys specialise in lobsters and burgers. It might come across gimmicky, but ignore that initial impression because if you're after good lobster, you'd be hard pressed to find it at better value for money than here. You can get a lobster (boiled, grilled or in a brioche roll with mayo) with a substantial salad and french fries for £23-£31, depending on how you have it and which branch you're in. For a smaller budget, the beef burgers will set you back £16.
It all started on a London rooftop in 2011; four schoolmates came up with the simplest of ideas - a restaurant where the focus was just two ingredients – burger and lobster – done really well.
From that first-ever Burger & Lobster, born in a small Irish pub in Mayfair, it’s fair to say we’ve grown – with nine restaurants located across London, as well as in New York, Dubai, Bangkok, Malaysia, Kuwait and Singapore.
What hasn’t changed, though, is our mission (some say obsession) to make the most of quality ingredients – whether that’s the Nebraskan family-farmed beef that goes into our prime burgers, the freshest Atlantic lobsters or the premium spirits for our tempting cocktails.
From that rooftop meeting to your table today, that simple idea stays true.
