A new delivery-only Creole restaurant is opening this week in Loudoun County — and the man behind it has deep roots in the food scene of New Orleans. It’s called BayouNOLA and it will be operating out of ChefScape at the Village at Leesburg.
BayouNOLA is the mastermind of Chef Nathaniel Landry. His grandfather, Walter Landry, was a chef at several well-known New Orleans restaurants — and before his passing — taught his grandson the fine art of Creole cooking. The menu at the new restaurant features the classics of the cuisine — Gumbo, Shrimp Etouffée, Red Beans, Dirty Rice — as well some interesting dishes like Crawfish & Pork Boudin and an Alligator & Pork Sausage. You can see the full menu here.
To start, BayouNOLA will be offering delivery via the Grubhub delivery service only on Friday and Saturday nights between 5 and 8 p.m. They expect to expand these delivery hours as they get rolling. Their food is also available for pre-order and pick-up/delivery via the LoudounGo online farmer’s market platform.
*NOTE: It’s important to point out that BayouNOLA is different from Bourbon Bayou Kitchen, a new restaurant under construction in the Ashbrook Marketplace shopping center. Our understanding is that Bourbon Bayou Kitchen will be a full-service, sit-down restaurant. The similar names could be confusing — but let’s focus on the important news: Loudoun County is getting two new options for delicious Louisiana-inspired cooking.
