The nine-strong site restaurant group, Burger & Lobster has teamed up with one of the UK's finest chefs, Tom Brown - Chef Patron of the Michelin-starred Cornerstone in Hackney - to bring two limited-edition dishes to its menu from 17 October until 14 November.
Famed for his love of seafood, it's no surprise to see Tom's signature pickled oysters make an appearance in the impressive Beef & Oyster Burger (£23). Shining a light on produce-driven cooking and originality, the creamy morsels of salt-laced-heaven take prime position on top of Burger & Lobster's premium juicy Nebraskan beef patty.
All layered on a soft brioche bun, and garnished with a zesty seaweed hot sauce, oyster mayonnaise, cucumber, and sprigs of dill, the must-try burger is bursting with rich umami flavours and served alongside signature crispy, golden fries.
The restaurant’s iconic Lobster Roll has also been given a touch of Michelin-star magic via the ultimate surf and turf creation. Dive tastebuds first into the Roast Chicken Lobster Roll (£28) that matches succulent wild-caught lobster with a deeply satisfying roast chicken mayonnaise.
Pickled shimeji mushrooms and chopped chervil provide a touch of acidity that perfectly cuts the richness. All are loaded into a pillowy brioche roll, topped with finely sliced blanched leeks and accompanied by crisp fries on the side.
To celebrate the launch, Burger & Lobster will be offering a free sample of one of the limited-edition dishes on Tuesday 18 October. Head down to the Leicester Square restaurant at 1pm and the first 50 people through the doors will be able to enjoy either a complimentary Beef & Oyster Burger or a Roast Chicken Lobster Roll.
Tom commented, “For the lobster dish, I’ve created something that combines what is great about Burger & Lobster, and what is great about Cornerstone – adding my chicken butter sauce to a lobster roll for even more indulgence. I think it’s something that everyone will love. As for the oyster burger, I've taken Cornerstone faves – pickled oysters – to complement the beef. Oysters and beef are a classic London combination, with a nod and contemporary take on the celebrated beef and oyster pie!”
