Express Lunch at Big Easy

It’s not often that you have time mid-week for a long, leisurely lunch or one that costs the earth for that matter (however, if you do, shall we go for lunch and you can divulge your secrets to me?!). But in Covent Garden, you don’t have to splurge to get a good bit of grub in and I have just the place for you.

Yesterday, I popped along to a lunch hosted by Bar.B.Q. & Lobster shack maestros (and a London institution no less) Big Easy in Covent Garden for a little lunchtime extravaganza to sample their Express Lunch menu. 

What is their Express Lunch menu I hear you cry?! I know, tricky one to decipher so let me explain.

It goes something like this:

  • Pick your drink (Prosecco, wine, beer, slushy cocktails or something January appropriate) 
  • Choose your main from the menu loaded with ALL the options: from Lobster Roll, Bar.B.Q. Taste-O-Rama, BBQ Brisket Sandwich to the Aged Cheddar Mac ’n’ Cheese, it’s full-blown screw the diet fantastic. Unless, y’know you go for the Caesar Salad… but who does that?

Along with a side of seriously good fries, you get all this for £10! Which is pretty much an impressive steal if you ask me. And I promise you, it’ll leave you stuffed all day.

Of course, I’m never one to ignore my surroundings and I couldn’t help but get completely lost in the design of the place. From top to toe, the restaurant is an interior magpie’s dream. From the glistening tiered bar to the hand-painted walls to the incredible drop light fittings. Naturally, I went overboard on the snaps for you below.

No need to say it, you’re so welcome.

Give the guys a visit at 12 Maiden Lane, WC2E 7NA

Go on, it's an easy decision, no biggie.
