Squaremeal Review of Big Easy Covent Garden ?

A spin-off from the original King’s Road rocker, Big Easy Covent Garden also aims to celebrate New Orleans in all its sinful glory. Located in what was a Victorian power station, the new site struts its stuff as a good-timing crabshack and BBQ restaurant with lots of original features intact and a massive ‘wall of fire’ kitchen below stairs featuring two Argentinian parrilla grills, rotisseries, wood-burning ovens and suchlike. Over 500 bottles are on display in the formidable nine-metre bar, which dispenses draught negronis plus a raunchy line-up of ‘boozy juice’, pickle backs and ‘X-rated shakes’ to get you primed for some juicy stateside hits. Pit-smoked chicken wings and spicy voodoo prawns with blue cheese dip make way for Nova Scotia lobsters, rare-breed British steaks and finger-licking St Louis-style ribs – all served up by chatty staff. There's also live music every night at this fun feast.

Former Steakhouse & Grill Wine List Of The Year

Proof that big (500-700 covers on a Friday night) or informal (BBQ/crab shack) needn’t mean a thoughtless drinks list. From cocktails to Condrieu and shakes to Champagne, this list packs more of interest into its five pages than most other lists do in 50. The by-the-glass selection is short, helpful and food-friendly while the ‘full list’ is wide-ranging yet compact and, for Covent Garden, fairly priced. How many Southern grill venues, we wonder, offer reds from Etna or Croatia or Madeira by the glass…

    When Kirsty said that there was a good, inexpensive sit down restaurant slap bang in the middle of Covent Garden I thought she had lost the plot.

    But being the inquisitive foodie that I am, I couldn't not try it, could I? Enter The Big Easy - a great Bar.B.Q. and Lobstershack that will leave you wanting more.

    We met on Kirsty's lunch hour so we needed to go somewhere quick and easy and the Big Easy fit the bill perfectly. We ordered from the lunch menu and both opted for the lobster roll with fries..

    American barbecue and seafood restaurant Big Easy Bar.B.Q & Crabshack is a relatively new addition to the Covent Garden restaurant scene. Housed in a former electrical power station, the place is huge and spread out over 2 floors. The décor is crab shack-meets-industrial, but it works.
    We popped in for lunch at around noon (coincidentally it was the 4th of July, Independence Day) and were fortunate to get a table without a reservation.
