When you’re looking for surf-n-turf, but want to dispense with the maitre de and suit you find a Burger & Lobster location and get after it! Friends of ours recommended this spot from their recent visit to London as did a few books and websites. My dad was also obsessed with the idea of this narrow menu done very well. While there are plenty of locations in London, Bangkok, New York, Dubai and others, we settled into the location on the top floor of Harvey Nichols.
A casual, but refined interior was a lively place filled with shoppers, date-nighters and all manner of guests. Our common bond? Devour the delicious choices of surf and turf in front of us. We ordered a few cocktails and a particularly tasty watermelon iced tea concoction and reviewed the small, but delicious menu. The Nebraska beef burger was thick and juicy topped appropriately with bacon and cheese. It was served with crispy salty french fries and their signature salad. While not the best burger we’ve had, it was a top-notch sandwich for sure.
Our lobster rolls were some of the best we’ve had! The traditional buttery toasted bun, lightly-dressed sweet lobster and touch of chives came together for a Cape Cod-worthy sandwich. Add those fries and salad and you will be one happy customer. My father tried the lobster burger (think of the two dishes above combined on a single sandwich) and raved about how much he loved it.
Whether you want the burger, a whole lobster or some variant in between, you’ll want to make this a priority if anywhere close to one. Functionally descriptive, calorically excessive and potentially addictive, Burger & Lobster will quickly become a favorite. Find out more and view their locations at burgerandlobster.com. Dig in!
