In 2011, John Schmidt and Arnold Shain bought out a 5,000 square foot location in Seattle, WA and appropriately dubbed it the Lunchbox Laboratory. Why is the name so apt? The duo and their team of chefs spent months experimenting with different cocktails, burgers, and sandwiches to create innovative takes on lunch classics. Whether you want a fun spin on a corporate lunch or an unforgettable caterer for an afternoon birthday party, look no further.
So, what’s on the menu? You’ll find all your standard all-American lunch classics made unique with meticulously crafted flavor profiles. Love burgers? You’ll find them dished up well beyond average here, stacked with decadent ingredients like gouda cheese, balsamic onions, and black garlic truffle mayo. Appetizers range from staples like the glorious Wisconsin tradition that is cheese curds to mouth-singeing tater tots smothered in Satan’s Tears Ketchup. And, trust us, the name does not exaggerate. Feeling healthy? The salads do not disappoint as they’re packed with hearty ingredients like bacon, blue cheese, chicken, and garlic rosemary croutons. If you want an impressive lunch vendor, book with Lunchbox Laboratory. It’s sure to make lunchtime exciting and guests will thank you.
Burger of the Gods - The name doesn’t lie. This kobe beef patty is smothered with blue cheese, balsamic onions, and gorgonzola spread for a robust burst of tangy flavor.
Bahn, James Bahn - Both duck and pork plus pickled carrots, cucumber, daikon, cilantro, and sweet chili mayo served on a bakery fresh bun. Yum.
