And that’s why we’re here with this PSA which you should appreciate: Big Easy is truly the other Burger & Lobster you wish you knew about earlier.
London is home to several restaurants that specialize in roast duck and whenever roast ducks are mentioned, the names that come to mind are the usual Four Season and Gold Mine.
