New Orleans takes over London this month
The New Orleans Saints Football Team will be playing against the Miami Dolphins at Wembley on 1 October 2017.
To celebrate, two of New Orleans restaurants will take up residency in London venues, giving Londoners the opportunity to discover the cuisine of the city.
Dickie Brennan will take up residency at Boisdale of Canary Wharf from Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October.
Galatoire’s will host a special pop-up dining series at the Beaumont Hotel from Wednesday 27 to Saturday 30 September.
“We are thrilled to see these highly regarded Louisianan chefs and restaurants bringing their skills and passion for food to London,” says Neil Jones, senior account manager for New Orleans CVB & Louisiana Office of Tourism UK & Ireland.
“This has been a great year for New Orleans with the launch of the direct service from London Heathrow with British Airways. The timings of the flights make it easy to consider the city for a long weekend to discover some of the city’s signature dishes or to book a longer trip and explore the plantation homes and bayous of Louisiana.”
The menus will showcase some of New Orleans’ famed dishes including Gumbo Ya Ya, Savoury Crabmeat Cheesecake, Langostino Etouffee, Shrimp and Grits and Bananas Foster.
