Burger & Lobster Soho
Time Out says
The Soho branch of the two-dish surf 'n' turf specialist, with some wicked desserts if you're sensible enough to leave space for them.
Please note, Burger and Lobster’s menu is now full a la carte and prices have changed. Time Out Food editors, January 2018.
Proof that less can be more, the late 2011 launch of Burger & Lobster, with its no-nonsense, three-item menu of burger, lobster, or lobster roll, was a runaway hit. This branch – a large Soho diner tricked out with lobster-red banquettes – is no less popular.
The menu has expanded of late, offering more than the original three options. There's still the standard key elements but with more flavours to play with, like the Singapore chilli roll and the chilli lobster. Fundamentally, you can’t go too far wrong with a one pound lobster for just under £25, served with thin cut chips and a salad.
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.
