A slice of New Orleans comes to London this April with Jambalaya at The Jam Tree. Taking place at both the Clapham and Chelsea restaurants, this 12-day pop up will inject the spirit, taste and music of New Orleans into the capital. The restaurant's executive chef, James Browne, has travelled extensively in New Orleans and has drawn upon his experiences to develop a menu of Creole and Cajun food. The main event will, of course, be the Jambalaya. Served straight from the pan, diners will be able to choose between chicken, crayfish and chorizo, or vegetarian. Other options being served are Louisiana crab cakes, pulled pork burgers, grilled blackened shrimps and mud pie with pecan ice cream and bourbon toffee sauce. With New Orleans regarded as the birth place of jazz, there will also be a suitably funky soundtrack for the entirety of the pop up.
Carrying on many of the characteristics of its Kensington counterpart, The Jam Tree will feature quirky interiors, mismatched furniture and Pop art. Featuring a large outdoor seating area and a light filled bar and dining area, complete with copper topped bar and roaring fires, The Jam Tree will provide a warm environment for its guests.
