Big Easy opened a new restaurant near Covent Garden on Maiden Lane few weeks ago. I wasn't sure it will be the perfect place to have lunch for me as I am allergic to crab and I heard their signature dish is crab. But I am very lucky they do lobster too! 
I went  for lunch with a friend, we both shared a grand appetizer, it has Voodoo chicken wings, pit smoked chicken wings, hush puppies, calamari and deep fried jumbo shrimp.I really enjoyed every thing in this platter, all sauce goes very well with everything. My favourite dish in this platter was deep fried jumbo shrimp, they were perfectly cooked, kind of juicy.

My friend had as a main the lobster bake from our wood burning oven which includes a whole Lobster, jumbo shrimp, mussels, crab claws & new potatoes with garlic sauce.The dish was serve in a paella pan, it looks like an paella but it has no rice in it!!

I ordered the lobster fest (£20), it includes a whole lobster with garlic butter sauce, fries, house salad & a  free Slushie cocktail. It is exactly the same price as Burger & Lobster you have a free (small) cocktail with it. The lobster was nice, perfectly cooked, I  wasn't really enthousiast about the salad, it didn't have any dressing, it was just a normal salad, the same you could get in your local supermarket straight from the plastic bag. Fries were fine but not the one I prefer. About the sauce, a real disappointment...It doesn't taste garlic at all, it was a butter sauce.

Overall lunch was nice, starters were all great, but for the main for the same price I prefer to go to Burger & Lobster and pay extra for a cocktail than eating again the lobster fest. 
I think the main course I took (Lobster fest) is better at Burger & Lobster, they serve salad with vinaigrette on top, onions and croutons, their garlic butter sauce taste garlic and fries are better.
