NOLA > LONDON

The London restaurant Boisdale of Canary Wharf will be hosting a limited pop-up residency from Dickie Brennan & Co. from September 25th – October 1st. Keeping the good times rolling, we are bringing Creole cuisine and southern hospitality to London, alongside the New Orleans Saints Football Team due to make their Wembley debut on October 1st.

Proprietors Ranald Macdonald and Dickie Brennan met earlier this year and over a long lunch dreamt the whole idea. It was a match made in heaven, both sharing unrivalled love of all the good things in life – food, music, and hospitality – deeply ingrained in both Highland and New Orleans culture and history.   In classic Boisdale style, the NOLA takeover will be fun-filled and authentic, bringing a slice of quintessential New Orleans to the capital of east London and only 16 minutes from Green Park Tube! With a curated music line up combined with Dickie’s home-cooking and signature cocktails and front of house flare, guests from near and far will be welcomed to the warm embrace of La Nouvelle-Orléans overlooking the fountains of Cabot Square and the iconic London skyline.

With the New Orleans pop up, guests will be taken on a culinary journey to the Deep South. The menu will showcase some of the Crescent City’s best loved and famed dishes, masterfully created by the man who does it best. Dishes will include Gumbo Ya Ya, Savoury Crabmeat Cheesecake, Shrimp Etouffee, Shrimp and Grits and Bananas Foster.

Guests will have an opportunity to experience classic cocktails from Dickie Brennan’s bar team using authentic ingredients like Southern Comfort, which was founded in New Orleans in 1874 at the very beginning of cocktail culture. Those visiting from the USA can revel in Boisdale’s world renowned collection of over 1,000 rare malt whiskies and as well as Europe’s finest collection of hand-rolled Cuban cigars which can be all enjoyed on the first floor Mardi Gras Garden Terrace.

In addition to New Orleans’ signature food and drinks, Boisdale described by Jools Holland, Boisdale Patron of Music, as “fairy tale of delight” is a destination music venue renowned for its affinity with blues, jazz and soul which is why live  music performances by acts such as Don Pipkin, The Mississippi Swamp Dogs and Dixie Devils will perfectly complement Dickie’s residency dining experience.

The New Orleans pop up will provide a unique, vibrant and stimulating environment in the heart of London. Boisdale of Canary Wharf once again will be offering unbeatable value, the very best quality ingredients and the famous Boisdale welcome, all dramatically and uniquely enhanced with an infusion of genuine Southern hospitality.If your travels are bringing you in that direction, make plans to join us. The New Orleans meet London experience won’t disappoint!
