London based chain Burger & Lobster made us cry "hell to the yeah!" (cringe) when they opened their first NYC location for relatively cheap lobster rolls (and kinda pricey burgers) back in 2015. Wednesday evening, the chain returns for round two with a new Bryant Park-adjacent location offering the same $20 burgers and rolls (with some higher and lower priced) alongside a new menu item: a tower of food that includes any two burgers, any two lobster rolls, two whole one pound lobsters, any three sauces, unlimited fries and salad and any four specialty cocktails or a bottle of Cava for $200. HELL TO THE YEAH!
Take a look around the space, which is festooned with lobster traps and what the restaurant classifies as nods to NYC and the neighborhood (theater-inspired lighting fixtures, theater masks, and a Samuel Beckett quote in neon, which the playwright would hate, if we're being honest).
New menu items beyond that four person tower include a Po Boy ($20) with cornmeal crusted lobster, and Burger Bites ($10) and Lobster Bites ($10), both served in a fried pastry shell.
