Burger & Lobster - Clarges St W1


I had been wanting to go to Burger & Lobster for the longest time.  Then, a few weeks ago, after I had been thwarted in my attempt to see the Hockney exhibition at the RA (I got there later in the day when the queueing time went down from two hours to one hour) I had the brilliant idea of ducking round the corner in Maytfair and trying out Burger & Lobster.  Whilst there are apparently queues (always in London, the queues...) at lunchtimes and particularly in the evening, on this Saturday afternoon it was actually pretty easy to get a table, although I chose to sit up at the bar and ended up having an instructive lesson on gin from the friendly barman.  I knew what I wanted - the lobster roll - but the burger and the lobster itself both looked good as I saw them being bussed by.
The lobster roll was everything I had hoped it would be - sweet toasted brioche, lots of succulent lobster with just the right amount of mayo and some chives sprinkled on top.  This was a rich, luxury sandwich (and so it should be at £20) but totally worth it.  Accompanied by a small, zingy salad and some great chips, this was a great lunch and I happily munched my way through it feeling pretty good about life.  I can't wait to go back and try the burger - it has also had good wraps and I do love a good burger - again my expectations are pretty high given the £20 price tag, but I suppose this is Mayfair...
