BBQ and Lobster shack, Big Easy, has reported strong trading figures at its newly opened Canary Wharf restaurant.
Favourite haunt of London’s foodie Instagram crowd and young professionals alike, Big Easy opened at the end of last year and is changing the face of Canary Wharf, an area that is growing its reputation as a seven-day lifestyle hub.
Less than seven months after opening its biggest unit to date at Canary Wharf, Big Easy is one of the most successful restaurant brands on the whole of the Canary Wharf Estate. It is a further addition to its successful network of close to 80 bars and restaurants and wider retail and leisure offer.
This is the third restaurant for the brand, which has other outlets on the King’s Road and in Covent Garden. The 400-cover restaurant spills out onto a 150-cover outdoor terrace and also boasts a 26-seater private dining room. The space includes various bars where customers can enjoy live Blues nights seven days a week.
Peter Courtney, Head of London, Lunson Mitchenall, said: “We have worked closely with the team at Canary Wharf to strengthen the food and beverage offer to draw new customers from the wider catchment to the 100,000 sq ft of bars, restaurants and shops we have on offer. Attracting popular names like Big Easy, Breakfast Club, Sticks’n’Sushi, Chai Ki and Ippudo in addition to other new names including Everyman Cinema and spinning gym Psycle has allowed us to do this and reinforced the area’s reputation as a catch all destination.”
The opening comes as the chain recently announced a number of new members to its senior management team.
