The casual dining concept created by school friends George Bukhov, Ilya Demichev and Mikhail Zelman will open its doors in Castlebrook Holdings The Hayes, central Cardiff, in a 11,490 sq ft unit where the company has signed a 25-year lease.
Part of the Goodman restaurant group, Burger & Lobster currently has six sites in London and has plans to open a restaurant in New York in November.
The company is also understood to be in talks to secure the Via Fossa site in West India Quays, Canary Wharf.
Restaurant Property’s agency director David Rawlinson, who advised on the Cardiff deal, said: “Burger and Lobster has been a terrifically popular concept in London. Now we are looking to help roll out the brand by acquiring larger well located restaurant units in key regional cities.”
The Cardiff venue will follow the simple menu concept that has made Burger & Lobster’s success, with a choice of a burger, lobster or lobster roll, with an average spend of the £25-£27.
