On to the food...having two alpha males at the table trying to outdo each other, could only mean that they were bound to order the biggest meal possible (brace yourselves for this): a 750g bone-in sirloin steak with half a 1.5lb lobster, complete with fries and a side salad (on top of the starters we shared, this is A LOT of food).
Ridiculous. There was a round of fajitas ordered whilst I opted for a somewhat lighter version of jumbo tiger shrimp, which have to be the meatiest, juiciest shrimp I have ever tasted (not very filling though). Topped off by a pitcher of frozen margaritas along with a jolly good singalong with the band and you're laughing.
Apart from a minor delay in being seated when we arrived (although we turned this into a positive by hitting the well-stocked bar), Big Easy did not fail to deliver. I'm just glad I don't work in the area as the lunchtime deals they have are a bargain! The good news is Big Easy have recently opened up a second branch in Covent Garden. Once I've burnt off the excesses of this visit, I will be there with bells on.
