Burger & Lobster lives up to its name and has one of the simplest menus around. Yes, you guessed it; they serve burgers and lobsters. There are literally three items on the menu; a lobster, lobster roll, and a burger. I usually am hesitant to go to restaurants that have such a limited menu; however, 2/3 of the restaurant’s menu is gluten free, making the restaurant very nobread friendly! …
Burger & Lobster began across the pond, with numerous locations around London that for years has drawn in crowds from all over. The B&L Flatiron location is the restaurant’s first restaurant in the United States, and although Burger & Lobster has a very limited menu (three items and no vegetarian options) I can honestly say that the few dishes they serve are amazing. I absolutely love lobster, so when I went to Burger & Lobster, I definitely knew what I was going to order. My friend ordered the burger California style, which makes this gluten-filled dish be gluten free. Both dishes come with a side of fries and a salad, and we ended up splitting the dishes and having our own little surf & turf. If I had to choose a favorite, I would definitely say the lobster. While the burger was great on its own, I thought the lobster was seasoned well and cooked perfectly.
Although the restaurant itself is huge (two stories), the staff is very attentive and friendly. The restaurant’s atmosphere is upbeat, and the small, but tasty, menu makes for the perfect boys night. And for the burger and lobster loving ladies out there, B&L is calling your name, too!
