Big Easy in Covent Garden is first and foremost a diner-style barbecue party restaurant. Case in point: the last time we went here we saw a table of six lads all wearing, erm, ‘vivid’ Hawaiian shirts with a giant pitcher of rum punch on their table. See, a party restaurant. But outside of loud music, neon lights, and a cocktail menu that reads like Patsy Stone has commandeered a slushie machine, this place actually serves some pretty great lobster. You can go for the full lobster bake from their wood-burning oven for just under thirty quid or the £20 signature half lobster, but we’d keep things cheap and casual with one of their classic lobster rolls. Pair with one of the super boozy slushies because, realistically, what else are you going to do in a restaurant where their motto is ‘put a lil South in your mouth’. There’s also a whole lot of BBQ and they’ve even got a weeknight happy hour at their bar.
