Goodman Restaurants launched Burger and Lobster in Mayfair 2011, and has since opened sites in Soho, Farringdon, the City, Fitzrovia and at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge.
The brand broke the mould when it first launched offering a mono-product approach and no-reservations policy, and was named Best New Scaleable Concept at Restaurant Magazine’s R200 Awards in 2012.
George Bukhov, who heads up Goodman’s international business, told BigHospitality the group aims to open a Burger & Lobster in every UK city as well as expanding internationally, and could open as many as 100 sites.
