What they say:

There's no such thing as half measures at Big Easy Bar.B.Q & Crabshack, who have set out to offer their guests "the most comprehensive, genuine quality US style barbeque and seafood dining experience in the UK." No pressure, then. But a quick consultation of the absolute catalogue of food and drink on the menu suggests they might just meet their target. The venue will build on the successes of their King's Road restaurant of the same name to offer an incredible spread of BBQ'd pork, beef, steaks and seafood. The notable nine-metre long bar will be fully stocked with over 500 bottles, with a particular focus on brown liquors (brandy, aged gin, whisky, rum and tequila). The interior will pay homage to the site's 19th Century power station roots, interspersed with Americana-inspired touches.

What we say:

The phrase 'go hard or go home' has surely never been more apt. In true authentic American-style, the extensive and frankly compelling menu is so diverse that there is literally something for everyone. From rare-breed British steaks to the very best fresh lobsters that are sourced every day of the year and everything in between, the folks at Big Easy have got all bases covered. The drinks cabinet, frozen margaritas, 'Boozey Juices' and alcoholic milkshakes - boasts a line-up so versatile that it will be hard to know exactly where to start. For a truly authentic American experience in London, this place is impossible to ignore.
