As much as I love a perfectly appointed table, dressed with loads of lovely linens and fabulous flatware, there’s something so fun about having afternoon tea at Big Easy, in a cool and relaxed ambient.
Overlooking the spectacular skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, the newly opened Big Easy takes its inspiration from the 19th century crab shacks & Bar B.Q of the American Gulf Coast.
As soon as you step in, you feel like you’re in one of those small town American diners with loads of wood and chequered table clothes. Big Easy has been serving authentic bar.b.q and fresh seafood in a charming and relaxed atmosphere since 1991. I’m not a real meat-lover, so I decided to pop in and try their afternoon tea, with scrumptious European and American cakes, accompanied by the best tea in the world, T2.
Each bite was exactly what I was hoping for, hearty sandwiches including egg mayonnaise, smoked salmon and cream cheese (my favourites), mouth-watering scones and macarons. I really enjoyed my afternoon tea at Big Easy, the food is varied so always something to suit everyone. The service was quick and professional even though the restaurant was full. Great value for money, too which is always a bonus.
My next play date at Big Easy will definitely include a lobster or two. So if you’re looking for an authentic American crabshack experience in London then Big Easy is probably the closest you’d get to it. For more info or to book a table visit bigeasy.co.uk.
