I’m a huge fan of single offering restaurants. They allow themselves to focus on a single item, and in turn usually make that item to some unbelievable level. Well, Burger & Lobster is like that, but with two offering. A burger…and a lobster. In fact, there is no menu. The staff will just explain to you what I just wrote. Of course, there is the added sell of a beautiful description; “what you’ll get is a 10 oz all beef patty cooked how you would like it, topped with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, pickles, aioli. A side salad of bitter greens as well as thin, crispy fries accompany the burger.” Sounds like my kind of burger!
So how was it you ask. Well, I don’t want to get all sassy, Jersey-Shore on you, but this burger was so fu*king good. Cooked to a perfect medium rare, the lightly toasted bun did it’s best to keep the juicy, fatty goodness from down my arms and onto my pants. My well placed napkin also stopped me from walking around town with a crotch full of shame. Throw in a well dressed salad and McDonald’s style fries. Done. Light a up a cigarette and roll me over. Easily in the top 3 of my life. It was so good, that I went back again. There I am halfway around the world, and I’m visiting the one restaurant on repeat. And not just one location, I’m going to multiple locations. Crazy, yes. Amazing, even more yes.
Of course, you can opt for the lobster roll..but then again, why would you. It’s lobster. I mean, try it to try it if that’s your thing. I promise it’s also very good. Look how much butter they give you!!! Come for the atmosphere, the awesome bar staff, the tasty alcoholic beverages, come for the whatever every you want. Just stay for the burger. Lesson learned. Lesson lived.
I want to thank two swanky locals for turning me on to this restaurant.
