Lobster rolls and burgers... with a menu like that can you really go wrong?! I'm so excited to share my latest restaurant adventure to Burger & Lobster with you guys because to be frank, it was bomb.com!
Located in the Flatiron district (with a second NYC location coming soon!) the concept was started in 2011 by 4 friends who wanted to perfect a restaurant on two main ingredients -- burgers and lobster. Flash forward to 2017 and they have locations across the globe including spots in Bangkok, Dubai, London, Kuwait, Manchester and Stockholm, just to name a few.
It turns out, they weren't the only ones who thought the concept was a great idea and I just happen to fall into that category! So let's get cracking -- see what I did there?!
We started dinner by checking out their drink menu which I ordered The Apothecary's Secret -- a cucumber mint vodka cocktail. I'm such a sucker for the refreshing cocktail and this one hit the spot. It would be a great option for when the weather warms up too!
Next up? We're talking lobster rolls. I've fallen hard for lobster rolls over the last few years so I could not wait to get my hands on these puppies. True story, I used to look forward to trips to Connecticut to meet with my business partner partly because I was obsessed with the lobster rolls up there. Burger & Lobster offers 3 varieties The Original, The Seven Samurai - with ginger infused mayo, cucumbers, cabbage, sesame seeds and togarashi sprinkle and The Fiesta - with chipotle mayo, corn, cabbage, bell peppers and pico de gallo. I mean... how's a girl to choose?
We decided we had to try The Original and then also decided on The Fiesta. Both excellent options! The Original is just what you're looking for when you're craving a juicy lobster roll -- buttery roll, mayo and topped with chives. One thing I've found in the city is that some places kind of skimp you on the lobster, but Burger & Lobster really loads you up. The Fiesta was another delicious option with a bit more kick than The Original. It was the perfect combination of a little spice without going overboard. The lobster rolls also come with fries and a side salad all for $20 or $25 -- which I thought was a steal for NYC! I should also note the dressing on the side salad was delicious and you know me, I'm not much of a salad girl so that's saying something!
Next up we decided we also had to try a burger to cap off the full Burger & Lobster experience. We opted for their 6 oz London Burger which was cooked perfectly to order and topped with the works, their burger sauce, and sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. Seriously solid burger done right to the last bite! I'm definitely going to have to come back to check out their Beast Burger too which has lobster meat topped on a 6 oz burger with swiss cheese and truffle mayo. Insane right?! Insanely delicious that is.
This spot is on point and I cannot wait to come back. It's the perfect spot to grab a bite after work, a cocktail in the bar, or for date night. Nice atmosphere and the staff was top notch! Burger & Lobster you treated us dang good, two thumbs up from me!
