As a treat at work our Manager took us all out for a pre-christmas dinner. We decided to try out the new Burger & Lobster restaurant on St John Street in Clerkenwell. I'd heard good reviews and was also intrigued as they have no menu and there's a set price of £20 per meal. The meals consist of literally either Lobster, Lobster Roll or Burger which all includes chips and salad. The other thing is...you cant book a table!!
We rocked up after work around 6.30pm and got shown to a table immediately. I was expecting it to be more cafeteria style but it wasn't at all. We were sat in a booth for four right in front of the open kitchen watching the chefs at work! We were handed a cocktail list and I opted for the Mint Collins which was pretty much a Mojito- DELICIOUS!! Within minutes we had ordered our food, I went for the Lobster- it'd be rude not to! I've got to say the service in there was great! The lady that served us was so attentive and even got out a real live Lobster for us to look at and touch although I was too afraid!
Our food was served so quick and Ive got to say it was DELICIOUS! You get a whole Lobster with melted garlic butter and the chips tasted just like Macdonalds chips. Even the salad was more than I expected with little extras like red onions, croutons and spinach! It really was a lovely meal and for a great price! I would highly recommend this place! My work colleague Gemma had the Burger and it was like a huge steak in a bun! She said it was very good!
Apparently Thursday and Friday nights are their busiest times so if you don't want to hang about in a queue get down there Mon-Wed. They have other branches in Mayfair and Soho which are supposed to get ridiciously busy!
Have you been to this restaurant? What did you think?
