Burger & Lobster is continuing on its global expansion plans in 2019 with the launch of its latest restaurant at Singapore’s upcoming tourist destination, Jewel Changi Airport.
The yet to be opened destination was designed by architect Moshe Safdie and features a dome-shaped facade made of glass and steel. It will offer both international visitors and locals play attractions, shopping and dining experiences, accommodation and aviation facilities in a single location.
The new Burger & Lobster eatery will be located at Canopy Park, Jewel’s top floor, where diners will be able to view the landscaping which will include a 40-metre high Rain Vortex, set to be the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
The London-born dining hotspot will feature a core menu that includes its burger, fresh Atlantic lobster and original lobster roll alongside a drinks programme catering to travellers, trend-seekers and local residents. New dishes using locally sourced ingredients and inspired by local flavours will also be introduced to the menu on a seasonal basis.
Burger & Lobster has appointed award-winning interior design consultancy Rockett to oversee the design and build of the 81-cover luxury eatery at Jewel. The newest restaurant will have a luxurious, contemporary design that infuses the unique mix of lush nature with urban energy. The restaurant’s design will feature reds, marble and handmade crackle-glazed tiles alongside fresh lobster tanks, which can be viewed from every seat in the restaurant.
With further eateries planned to launch across the globe, including the United States and Asia, the expansion follows a “better than expected” year-end period of trading globally.
Misha Zelman, owner, Burger & Lobster said: “We consider ourselves very fortunate to be opening in Singapore and adding Jewel to the global family of restaurants. We have secured an iconic Singapore location in Jewel and are excited to be evolving the Burger & Lobster brand in such a ground-breaking global innovation at the heart of Southeast Asia.
“With Jewel dubbed to be the gateway to the rest of the world, the partnership marries perfectly with Burger & Lobster’s obsession with offering products in the most fascinating locations across the world.”
Hung Jean, chief executive officer of Jewel Changi Airport Devt, added: “It is our aspiration for Jewel to be a place where ‘Singapore Meets the World, and the World Meets Singapore’. Burger & Lobster will be an invaluable addition to our specially curated mix of dining establishments. We are very excited that Burger & Lobster has chosen Jewel to be its first-in-Singapore location and we look forward to our partnership together.”
Jewel is on track to open in the first half of 2019.
