Bocca di Lupo
This Brixton branch – on Acre Lane – is one of three Blues Kitchens in London. The others are in Camden and Shoreditch. Each follows the same theme – food of a southern American bent served to a soundtrack of live music.
And while the music of the moniker does play more than a small part on the music programme, it’s not all about the blues. Expect, too, swing, soul, bluegrass, Motown and themed nights – including a popular Halloween gig. There’s usually something on every night of the week.
The food menu takes in classic Deep South dishes, with New Orleans gumbo, catfish jambalaya, Texan brisket, St Louis pork rib and a creole bean burger and jerk chicken salads also feature.
