Love burgers and lobster? Devour both at the Cattle & Claw pop-up restaurant inside the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. New to the L.A. culinary scene, this easy-t-love eatery has a single purpose: to give in-the-know omnivores a place to enjoy two of the world’s favorite foods – lobsters and burgers.
Offering a touch of SoCal casual cool, you’ll find five-ounce, simple-yet-delicious burgers if a quick bite is all you desire, or a larger ten-ounce patty crowned with roasted red pepper and garlic mayonnaise, if that’s your fancy. Add in truffle fries or sweet potato fries, match it all up with a craft beer and you’ll taste what sets Cattle & Claw apart – quality ingredients cooked to perfection.
Lovers of the lobster claw will simply skip the beef and dive right into a delightfully spiced lobster roll served up on a homemade bun drizzled with a tangy remoulade sauce or perhaps choose a lobster-tomato-arugula salad enhanced with a Champagne vinaigrette. Of course, purists will happily enjoy the half or whole lobsters also found on the Cattle & Claw menu, with flavorful tarragon cream for dipping.
Patrons who cannot choose between having a burger or a lobster will love the five-ounce burger and half lobster combo, served along with fries and salad. Cattle & Claw’s libations round out whatever menu favorites you choose, with curated cocktails designed to pair perfectly with either surf, turf or both, like a Lobster Bloody Mary or a Classic Mojito; or simply ask for a local brew or glass of California’s best wine.
When it comes to enjoying locally sourced, farm-fresh beef and the best lobster from across the seas in an easygoing atmosphere, Cattle & Claw is certain to soon be the hottest spot in town.
