  1. My good friend A wanted to check Big Easy's sophomore restaurant in Covent Garden for her post-birthday tete-a-tete. Quite apt, because I honestly think everyone should have steak or lobsters for their birthday. There was so much buzz about the new opening so we tried to book a week in advance only to find out they were full. Walk-in status it is then. We arrived at 6.30 and the hostess told us we would be seated at 8.15pm the latest (they had to turn people away as the wait list was so long). I was ready to walk across the road for some sushi and yakitori but A really wanted to eat there, so despite the massive protest from my hangry belly I cheerfully said "That's fine! We'll wait by the bar!" (God knows I needed a stiff one.)...

They also have a good beverage selection of Thai coffee/tea and Thai-inspired cocktails. On rare occasions when the sun is out and the weather is cooperative, I ask for a table outside. It's a pretty view of the courtyard: neighbouring restaurants offer al fresco dining as well and it's nice to feel a bit of a buzz from such polite punters. Foot traffic here is slow and steady so you don't feel like you're in the West End at all...
