But while the original Clarges Street B&L opened to a frenzy and queues of over two hours (apparently queues in the Soho branch on a Saturday night can still reach 2 hours), in Bread Street, you'll have an easier time of things. What's more, you're also unlikely to meet a food blogger as the restaurant has on Urbanspoon just two blog posts against its name. Two points in its favour then.
The queues may be different but the format remains the same: a menu familiar to all, cocktails beer and wine and, I am pleased to say, service as friendly as ever. And on this later point, nor is it because we are bloggers, we wandered in as we just happened to be in the area, unknown to the mid afternoon service staff, but it was still smiles and friendliness all round. Indeed, we have yet to visit B&L without encountering that, the group's ethos toward service is admirable, as much part of the DNA as lobster for £20.
We wont dive into food descriptions, for surely there can't be anyone who doesn't know what the offering is or what it tastes like by now. So we'll simply conclude by saying that if you like Burger & Lobster, you'll feel right at home in the City branch: we do, and we did.
