Burger & Lobster has been serving up its iconic lobster roll for a decade, and the surf and turf specialists are switching things up a gear.
In an exciting collaboration with sarnie maestro and TV chef Max Halley of Max's Sandwich Shop, two limited-edition rolls will join the crustacean clan for the first time.
From 6th April 2022, the man behind the best sandwich shop in London will be bringing reimagined rolls with a playful and unapologetically British twist to town. Working alongside Burger & Lobster's talented chefs, both feature B&L's signature toasted brioche roll and the finest wild-caught Atlantic Lobster, sustainably sourced from the coasts of Nova Scotia Canada – plus Max's distinctive touch of topping creations with crisps.
The limited-edition lobster rolls, both served with fries, will be available exclusively at all nine Burger & Lobster restaurants from Wednesday 6th April to Monday 6th June 2022 for lunch and dinner.
Burger & Lobster's new Spring menu features a refreshing lobster salad (£20), a soft-shell crab roll served with fries (£16), and a juicy 5oz pure Nebraskan beef burger with truffle and parmesan fries (£13). There’s also a 100% Wagyu beef burger with crispy onions, an umami-packed beef sauce and horseradish mayo, as well as oozing truffle and burrata croquettes (£6).
Fish & Chip Lobster Roll
Fish and chips, but not as you know it. Elevating the humble classic, this Max Halley x Burger & Lobster creation features juicy chunks of lobster meat bound with tartare sauce and garnished with lime pickled onions, a vibrant pea and mint purée, shredded baby gem lettuce and finely diced gherkins. All topped with crushed salt and vinegar crisps, packed into a toasted roll and accompanied with golden fries.
Lobster Cocktail Roll
A British favourite done the Burger & Lobster way. This nostalgic number comes piled high with fresh picked lobster claw and knuckle meat dressed up to the nines with a retro Marie Rose sauce that's finished with a dash of tabasco and brandy. Garnishes take the form of iceberg lettuce, avocado and cucumber, a squeeze of lemon, a sprinkle of finely chopped tarragon and crushed prawn cocktail crisps for good measure, all loaded into a buttery brioche roll and served alongside fries.
