British restaurant chain Burger & Lobster will set up shop at the Durst Organization’s One Bryant Park, leasing the last available space at the building.

The eatery — which offers just three dishes: a burger, a lobster and a lobster roll — took 8,900 square feet at the 51-story, 2.3 million-square-foot tower at Sixth Avenue and 42nd Street. Asking rent at the space was about $1 million per year, the New York Post reported.

The location will be Burger & Lobster’s second in the city. It currently operates a store at 39 West 19th Street in the Flatiron District.

The Durst-developed One Bryant Park opened in 2009. Bank of America leases 1.59 million square feet there, and is a part-owner of the property.
