Burger & Lobster to open second Smack Lobster Roll site
Burger & Lobster is set to open its second Smack Lobster Roll site on Dean Street in London's Soho this week.
The new venue will be the first Smack site to offer a take-away option only and will serve lobster rolls and lobster salads for £10.
The opening will follow the launch of the new Burger & Lobster on Threadneedle Street in London, in a restored bank.
The new site is the group's largest to date, providing space for over 300 diners, a private dining room and mezzanine level which overlooks the restaurant and island bar.
It will serve food under the same format as previous Burger & Lobster restaurants, with three dishes (a burger, a lobster, or a lobster roll), all priced at £20.
The restaurant uses live lobster sourced direct from Nova Scotia, while its 10oz burgers are cooked from three cuts of Angus steak. Both are served with chips and salad.
In addition, the Threadneedle Street site will see the launch of Burger & Lobster's new breakfast concept, which consists of its 6oz breakfast burger and lobster scrambled eggs.
Burger & Lobster started life in 2011 as an off-shoot of Russian-owned steakhouse group Goodman. It has eight UK Burger & Lobster sites (seven in London and one in Cardiff), as well as a site in New York. The first Smack Lobster Roll site opened in London's Binney Street last year.
