New Orleans, Louisiana (PRWEB)

The Great British restaurant Boisdale of Canary Wharf will be extending the summer with a limited pop up residency from acclaimed New Orleans chef and restaurateur Dickie Brennan, his kitchen brigade and front of house team from Monday 25th September until Sunday 1st October. Keeping the good times rolling, Boisdale will welcome the culinary celebrity who brings his celebrated hearty 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 up 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.
The Brennan family, of Irish descent, is credited with creating a culinary tradition regarded by many as the epitome of New Orleans fine dining. Dickie Brennan comes from a family of restaurateurs and is the only member of the family to have held the position “Executive Chef” and his culinary aptitude is evident through the many accolades his restaurants have received, including “Best Steakhouses in the United States” (Travel + Leisure) and “Best New Restaurants in America” (Esquire).
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.
