Restaurant recommendation: Garbo’s Lobster Dripping Springs

What we ate:

  • Connecticut Roll ($32) – Butter-poached Maine lobster, topped with Garbo’s house seasoning, fresh lemon juice and scallions in a New England top split roll (we added 7g of caviar for $18).
  • Seafood Tower ($65) – The tower contains a mix of shrimp, lobster and oysters.
  • Bubbles & Bump ($18) – A glass of sparkling wine served with a bump of Garbo’s Signature Caviar.
  • Mozzarella & Lobster Bites ($19) – Heavenly fried balls of mozzarella, lobster and shrimp, served with Caribbean aioli.
  • Brussels Sprouts ($10) – Brussels sprouts topped with soy-lime vinaigrette and crispy shallots.
  • Lobster Mac & Cheese ($28) – Butter poached Maine lobster, cheddar, parmesan, gruyere and Gouda cheeses, topped with bread crumbs and crispy bacon.
  • Lobster Grilled Cheese ($30) – Butter poached Maine lobster, white cheddar, smoked gouda, bacon and roasted cherry tomatoes melted in sourdough bread.

Our personal favorites were the mozzarella and lobster bites, lobster mac and cheese, and bubbles and a bump. Basically, any chance we had to eat caviar, we were all for it!
