Burger & Lobster, the brand behind delicious burgers and mouth watering lobster dishes, has opened a new restaurant in Knightsbridge.
The restaurant, which is housed within Harvey Nichols, opened its doors in early November and is already proving popular with fashionistas and foodies alike.
Located next to the Fifth Floor Café, the food market and the new wine shop, Burger & Lobster Knightsbridge is easily accessible via the escalators and express lifts, and is the ideal pit stop for pre or post-shopping sustenance, open in the evening too. Serving up cocktails and crustaceans a plenty, Burger & Lobster Knightsbridge features the restaurant’s signature wood panelling and red leather seating, whilst the entrance is marked by lobster cages.

Andrew Harwood, designLSM Associate, spoke to Premier Hospitality about the latest Burger & Lobster site:
“Burger & Lobster Knightsbridge presented a fresh challenge from the other four Burger & Lobster restaurants because of its situation within the department store. We worked closely with the client and the Harvey Nichols team to create an inviting restaurant that would attract Harvey Nichols’ customers and successfully represent the increasingly familiar Burger & Lobster brand.
“In terms of interior design, for Burger & Lobster Knightsbridge we concentrated on creating a distinctive space with a warm and cosy ambience, in contrast with the bright lights of the department store.”
designLSM have worked with Burger & Lobster on all of their restaurants, helping to establish their unique brand through signature interior design elements in each of their hugely popular London restaurants. Each restaurant has its own unique character with bespoke features designed by designLSM. Notable features and materials used in Burger & Lobster Knightsbridge include lobster pot walls with script signs, timber faced kitchen panels and the trademark lobster tank housing the ‘big boys!’
“We’ve worked with the team behind Burger & Lobster on all of their UK restaurants, with this latest addition in Harvey Nichols marking their fifth Burger & Lobster restaurant and the eighth restaurant in their UK portfolio. We’re now looking at their next projects and we’re delighted to continue our work with this trail blazing client.”
The restaurant presents a simple, yet enticing menu, which features just three items: whole live 1.5lb lobster from Nova Scotia or Maine; lobster rolls served in a brioche bun with Japanese mayonnaise; or a 10oz handmade burger in a brioche bun with chips and salad. All meals are priced at £20 and for those looking for a lighter option, the restaurant also has a tasty California Burger, which is equally as tempting.
Burger & Lobster launched in Mayfair in late 2011, by the team behind Goodman Restaurant Group and quickly became a massive success for its inimitably simple offering. Burger & Lobster Knightsbridge is the fifth Burger & Lobster restaurant to open in London, adding to the portfolio which includes restaurants in Mayfair, Soho and Farringdon.
