Burger Wars Episode XXXII: The Surf n’ Turf Revenge

The other night I went for dinner with a colleague, we were in the vicinity of Covent Garden so I suggested going to Christopher’s. Established in 1991, with 3 different floors in a historic building which was London’s first licensed casino, comprising a restaurant, a martini bar, and a private dining room, serving Neo-American food.

Got the menu, and ordered a couple beers. As a starter I went for the Cobb Salad, and my main the Surf n’ Turf burger, 8oz of chopped rib eye patty with ½ Maine Lobster. I ordered medium rare, with extra cheese and bacon, shoestring fries and tobacco onions as a side.

Lobster stealing the show

The verdict, the burger was ok, good flavour, juicy, tasty, crunchy bacon but the Lobster stole the show, it was excellent. The Cobb salad also had a leading role it was amazing, excellent flavours, excellent balance with the avocado, quail egg, the pancetta, and the blue cheese. Fries and rings were crunchy and tasty.

The damage, 39.95 quids for the burger and the half lobster, add another 4 quids for the fries.

The conclusion, good flavour but not great, I will come back but not for a burger, probably more Cobb salad and a USDA prime steak. I will give them 8 in my scale.


The Cobb salad reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Big Salad

George: Did you see what just happened?
Jerry: Well, that all depends.
George: Did you happen to notice that Julie handed the big salad to Elaine?
Jerry: Yeah, so?
George: Well, she didn't buy the big salad. I bought the big salad.
Jerry: Is that a fact?
George: Yes it is. She just took credit for my salad. That's not right.
Jerry: No it isn't.
George: I mean I'm the one who bought it.
Jerry: Yes you did.
George: You think she should have said something?
Jerry: She could have.
George: Oh, I know.
Jerry: Imagine, her taking credit for your big salad.
George: You know you buy a big salad for somebody it would be nice if they knew it.
Jerry: Obviously.
