I have a list of 70 food concepts I would like to try in New York. I try to cover a few of them each time I am there. One such concept is Burger&Lobster.
I've been to the one in London and remember not leaving impressed but I left the one in New York's Faltiron District impressively happy. The place is nice... A huge dimmed industrial space with wood flooring, fish nets, black ceiling and a bar occupying the left side of the restaurant. There's an open kitchen diffusing tasty aromas around the diner.
They only sell three items: Lobster (grilled or steamed), the famous lobster roll and the 10oz beef burger.
A full lobster served with salad and fries, with butter and sauce on the side. It's juicy like you can't imagine, a lobster you'll enjoy emptying and sucking inside out. Steamed, enjoy the light zesty freshness, tender meat and great taste... Extremely recommended! I couldn't stop eating.
The lobster roll is good but not the best I've had. I loved the crispness of the buttered bread and the generously filled sandwich with chunks of lobster marinated in mayo and other ingredients.
The burger, thick and stuffed with a piece of red medium juicy meat, tomato, cheese and lettuce. The bun is loaded with sesame, tender and the inside is so pure. No sauce so you add a bit of ketchup for more enjoyment, the meat is juicy and rich, vegetables add freshness. That's definitely better than what I've had in London. All plates come with a salad and French fries on the side served in a metallic cup.
Burger&Lobster is a place I'll recommend to my friends.
