Make mine plant: Cattle & Claw rolls out new sustainable burger
The plant-based movement has encouraged eaters to seek more alternative proteins. With that in mind, Cattle & Claw has enhanced its offerings by adding a plant-based burger to its seasonal fare that celebrates the core ingredients which inspired the restaurant’s creation – lobster and beef.
The Southern California-cool eatery is featuring Beyond Meat, the world's first plant-based burger that looks, cooks, and satisfies like beef without GMOs, soy, or gluten—furthering debunking the notion that meat has to come from animals. Meat is made up of four building blocks: protein, fat, trace minerals, and water. Cattle & Claw’s plant-based burger finds these same building blocks in the plant kingdom to rebuild meat from the ground up without sacrificing on taste or texture. Beyond Meat is one of the fastest growing food companies in the United States, offering a portfolio of revolutionary plant-based meats. They build meat directly from plants, an innovation that enables consumers to experience the taste, texture and other sensory attributes of popular animal-based meat products while enjoying the nutritional benefits of eating our plant-based meat products.
Located inside the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, which was recently awarded the coveted Green Seal Silver Certification, Cattle & Claw launched the new menu just in time for it’s one year anniversary celebration. The beloved eatery is in the heart of Los Angeles at the intersection of Beverly and La Cienega, and has quickly become a destination for foodies across the city and beyond as it offers omnivores a place to enjoy two of the world’s favorite foods – lobsters and burgers. With the introduction of its latest menu, guests can enjoy a colorful selection of shareable appetizers and family-inspired entrées among the blooming ambience of the restaurant’s garden patio consistently ranked among the top patios across Los Angeles.
In addition to the new Beyond Burger, diners can begin their meal with a summer kebab featuring locally-sourced, freshly grilled veggies and beef, or a lobster minestrone made with cannellini beans, tomato and squash. Pizza-lovers can rejoice with a choice of meatball or lobster pizza, and those looking for a pasta dish can enjoy the ravioli stuffed with lobster and mascarpone potato served in a light cream sauce with asparagus and cherry tomatoes. Guests seeking ultimate decadence will be delighted by the Cattle & Claw’s two crowning achievements of the seasonal menu: the lobster burger, made with a lobster patty and a grilled beef patty, both smothered in melted brie and lobster aioli, and the lobster paella, a Southern California-take on the traditional Spanish dish that is topped with whole lobster and which can be served as individual portions or family-style.
