Square Meal Review of Big Easy Chelsea ?

The King’s Road is an unlikely setting for a theme restaurant celebrating New Orleans in all its sinful glory, but drop by most nights and you find this good-timing eatery packed to the rafters. Wipe-clean chequered tablecloths, plastic lobster bibs, wackily titled dishes, a Tequila-heavy cocktail list and thumping live music all say ‘to hell with it’ – a message reinforced by the gut-busting menu. It may be all about size, but the kitchen knows where it’s at: extra-meaty St Louis-style spare ribs come with BBQ beans, butter-drenched whole lobsters are sweet and juicy, and the bone-in rib-eye is timed to perfection. Elsewhere, chicken ‘tenders’ (goujons), lobster rolls and crackly pork scratchings with apple compote also get noticed. Happy-go-lucky service is right on the money, although not everyone is sold on the restaurant’s ‘dark corners’ and high-decibel soundtrack.

    MotleySpicer :: Review: Big Easy Chelsea

    I’ve been meaning to hit up Big Easy for absolute ages if for no other reason but to tackle their unlimited ribs deal on Mondays. Unfortunately, we ended up going on Tuesday but since it was unlimited shrimp day it wasn’t all that bad. The restaurant is suitably (and tackily albeit lovably so) decorated with various fishing/shrimping gear and nets as well as a number of hilarious posters. The staff are very friendly and helpful and somehow managed to maneuver massive trays of meat through the tightly packed tables without any accidents. The atmosphere is vibrant and the value for money pretty damn impressive. They’ve...

    S.W. Foodie :: The Big Easy - a classic

    The Big Easy is somewhat of a Kings Road institution. Where the posh-o's get their fix of finger lickin' ribs and fantastically priced lobster. Mr D and I go for the wings every time and almost always over lunch as they do a great £10 set menu which includes a drink, starter and main out of a choice of six or seven dishes within each section. Bargain!!!

    The restaurant is great fun for large groups as they have a live band till late downstairs every night and do large sharing platters to place in the middle of the table. Week nights showcase their 'all you can eat' themed events as well as an a la carte menu...

    Over the Hype :: Big Easy

    I love Big Easy enough to be back for a second time in two weeks with my membership card ready to collect them loyalty points. I’ll be qualified for a free meal very soon…

    Value for money is not what you’d normally associate Chelsea with, but this American diner on Kings Road is practically giving away food to those on an average income of -20k a year like me. Students!...

  1. Big Easy brings a taste (and the portion sizes) of the USA to London town. The crab shack was born on the King’s Road in Chelsea, but they’ve now opened a newish version of the same thing in the tourist wonderland that is Covent Garden.

    We traipsed along the alarmingly fancy King’s Road to try out the very first Big Easy for a girls dinner one evening in February. We could never have fully prepared for what was about to happen...

  1. I first went to the Big Easy 20 years ago - gosh that makes me feel old writing that - the restaurant was totally kicking then and I was very surprised to see that it is still super popular now. Pascal, Arabella & I booked for 6.30pm on Friday night and we were lucky to get a table - the place was heaving.

    The Big Easy actually opened in 1991 and it is inspired by the crab shacks and barbecue restaurants of the American Gulf Coast. There is often live music and it serves hearty American food with different special deals every night, for example on a Tuesday you can have limitless shrimp and a margarita or...
