The Norman Foster Crossrail terminal at Canary Wharf has more than architectural prowess and sensible travel links to recommend it – it also has a Big Easy (the third site, following Big Easy Covent Garden and Chelsea) occupying a third of its top floor. With views stretching over the whole of Canary Wharf, the adjacent Crossrail garden and live music every night, it is a great place to drink in both summer and winter. To eat? There is an oyster and raw bar to keep it bang up to date with current fashions, as well as plenty of barbecue meat. They’re determined to do things in proper American style here: it’s not just the portions that are outsized, they’ve also installed three enormous US-built smokers. The restaurant also boasts a vast open kitchen and the biggest pit room anywhere in the UK. It may seem a bit excessive if all you want is a burger, but they’ve got a reputation for those too.
We made it to the Big Easy this week!Famous for its “Bar.B.Q” meats that have been specially selected and lobsters, the Big Easy has three different prime locations in London. We chose the newest of them – Canary Wharf’s cross rail. It was our first time there, having heard so much about it. It’s also hard to get a table, if you don’t book ahead – unless you want to be told to wait two hours!

The diner, ladies and gentlemen, is an American contraption that for me has always been synonymous with feeding people – not impressing them, not changing their lives, merely feeding them. It was (in my mind) created to offer a respite from stay at home moms, to be a refuge for single men who can only make burnt toast, or, in some occasions, to act as a place where one can meet other people. Why they would ever want that, I am baffled.
