With so much to do and see, it’s no wonder that Covent Garden is arguably one of the biggest draws for both tourists and Londoners.
While you're visiting this must-see destination and wandering over to Leicester Square, be sure to stop off at Burger and Lobster in the heart of Chinatown.
Best known for our obsession with just two ingredients – burger and lobster, done really well - it’s fair to say that since our opening in 2011 we’ve grown – with nine restaurants located across London, as well as in New York, Dubai, Bangkok, Malaysia, Kuwait and Singapore.
For the best food near Covent Garden, head for Burger and Lobster to enjoy the finest Atlantic lobsters served fresh daily or the juiciest Nebraskakan family-farmed beef that goes into our prime burgers, or a combination of both (because, why not!) alongside a tempting selection of starters, sides, desserts and cocktails.
