fraqs-intUpdated 1/12/14 with menu details

It's all about lobster in Fitzrovia this week with two crustacean-focused restaurants opening in that area within weeks of each other. We've already written about Lobster Kitchen on Great Russell Street, now we're hearing that Fraq’s Lobster Shack will be opening on Goodge Street.

Fraq's is a small (30-seater) eat in and takeout restaurant with a brief menu featuring East Coast American specials and focusing on lobster and seafood.

  • The Boston Roll £15 (brioche roll with Maine lobster meat, lemony mayo, spring onion, cos lettuce and finely sliced celery.
  • The Calamari Club, £9( toasted white bap, tartar sauce, cos lettuce and lightly coated crumbed squid)
  • Hot Prawn and Avocado Roll, £11 (brioche mix roll, punchy Marie Rose sauce with avocado, cos lettuce and chilli flakes)
On the drinks list there are three white wines, bottled beers and an East Coast Old Fashioned, fused with maple syrup and bacon.

It's the brainchild of brothers Andrea and Alberto Fraquelli whose family run Metropolitan Restaurants - Getti, Assaggetti and Zia Theresa.

Fraq's is now open at 55 Goodge Street, London W1W 1TQ. Keep up with their news on Twitter @fraqslobster or Facebook. Opening hours are open Monday to Saturday 12 - 11pm, walk-ins only.
