Burgers and lobsters: Los Angeles pop-up proves a mega hit

The last time I was in Los Angeles I was lucky enough to be a guest at one of the best addresses in town - the impeccably-located Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. 

I loved the property; but was not totally thrilled by the food offering.   

I was obviously not alone as the five-star hotel opened a pop-up eatery in April specialising in hamburgers and lobsters: Cattle & Claw. It just doesn't get any more American, or fun.  


Now, by popular demand, the casual pop-up has had its stay extended for the fall (that's autumn to us)-winter season. 

The photos caught my eye; how hard would it be to turn down the option of a decadent lobster mac 'n' cheese (below)?

 
The new menu also includes a lobster bisque, a nod to Quebec in the form of a savoury poutine and the ultimate Californian dish: surf  'n' turf.  For some serious decadence I'd be ordering some truffle fries. 

For anyone who happens to be in the city of  angels, the new menu launches tomorrow.

 
Prices might appear to be low by Australian standards, but remember you'll be expected to tip at least 20%.
