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 and the South.

Dickie Brennan:  

The Brennan family has been perfecting the art of beef preparation in their family restaurants. That's why at Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse we grill our chops, sear our strips, oven-roast our prime rib and broil our filets. The same level of attention extends to the service. In Dickie Brennan's own words, "We're not here for today, we're here for 50 years down the road."

Boisdale of Canary Wharf:

A lively restaurant and music venue serving modern British food as well as a whisky bar, terrace, oyster bar & grill and cigar library, overlooking the city skyline.


Founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire, this infamous address distinguished itself on Bourbon St. from its humble beginning. From the small village of Pardies, France, Jean Galatoire brought recipes and traditions inspired by the familial dining style of his homeland to create the menu and ambiance of the internationally-renowned restaurant. In its fifth generation, it is the Galatoire family and descendants who have carried the tradition of New Orleans’ fine dining restaurants and influenced its evolution. The restaurant’s culinary customs and reservation statutes have been preserved with little change throughout the decades.
