SASSAFRAS is London's newest supperclub serving authentic New Orleans cuisine with a Great British Twist.
“New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin.” Mark Twain
Our tailor made menu features a feast of unique Creole/Cajun flavours, carefully prepared by our Head Chef, Llewyn. His legendary gumbo is culinary voodoo magic and each dish delivers a real taste of NOLA's rich food culture.We'll continue the tradition of our last three sold out events, and start you off with an authentic NOLA cocktail and some Cajun popcorn. We'll then infuse your evening with the sounds of the Bayou, and finally fill you up with a delicious four course meal all served with typical Southern charm.
We'll be open from 6.30pm so come down early to enjoy your complimentary cocktail and take in views of the london skyline as the sun sets.
We will have a paid bar again serving a range of American beers, delicious bourbon-based cocktails and a wine list.
Dinner will be served outside on the rooftop so please bring warm coats or jumpers for when it gets cooler in the evening and as british weather can be so unpredictable we've organised rain cover provisions!

It sounds good, right? It tastes even better. The sassafras flavour is essential to Louisiana cooking, particularly in the form of filé powder, or gumbo filé, the spicy herb made from dried, ground leaves of the sassafras tree. Initially adopted and used in cooking by Native Americans in the South, the herb was adopted into Creole cuisine in Louisiana. It's an essential and authentic part of Cajun cooking and it felt the perfect fit for our new food experience.
