2.) Stop for Lunch at Burger & Lobster, Clarges Street
There are two parts to this story!
The Burger: To make a great burger you have to start with great beef. B&L's Angus beef is 'Best in Class' from Nebraska - three parts of the bull blended and full of flavour. Burgers are grilled and cooked to perfection. The open flame grilling adds another layer of B&L goodness. Combined with our seasoning, specialty sauce, toppings and classic bun, this is a burger for the books!
The Lobster: The Journey of B&L lobsters starts in Nova Scotia, where the waters are deep and the lobsters are flavourful. Regardless of what Burger & Lobster location you are at, lobsters are flow in throughout the week to provide optimal freshness. 'The Lobster Spa' at B&L is a stress-free environment that mimics the ocean allows the lobster to maintain its flavour. Perfect for both grilled-lobster and steamed-lobster people.
3.) Refuel with Healthy Juices at Raw Press, Dover Street
Dover Street's Raw Press boast a constantly revolving menu of nutritious food and drinks. Raw Press is a leading health and wellbeing brand, with a delicious range of organic, raw and cold-pressed juices available. They are made in London using a slow hydraulic process with very little heat generated and minimal oxidisation, such that the juices retain the highest possible level of nutrients. Duck into Raw Press for an instant nutritious hit this month.
