What they say:

Bringing some southern hospitality flavour to London's East End, Ninth Ward plates up heaps of New Orleans heritage with its Jambalaya and Gumbo dishes, bringing Louisiana culture from kitchen to mouth. With the launch of a London pad, Ninth Ward's architectural integrity will bring traditional New Orleans features to the Farringdon Road restaurant and bar, mirroring the French Quarter style of its New York predecessor. Ninth Ward is a slice of Southern soul all about the simple honest goodness of food, drink and friends. 

What we say:

This split-level London site promises to be a taste of the American South, framing cult diner classics like dirt fries and ribs with an unmistakable Louisiana twang (try the 'Slap Ya Mamma Buffalo Wings' and 'Drunken Brunch' special on for size!). Owing to that famed Southern sensibility, Ninth Ward hails a love for no fuss, big mess food favourites like beefy burgers and a pulled pork sandwiches. With a generous appreciation for craft beers as well as cocktails, this Louisiana landmark is set to be a definite crowd pleaser with beer-loving, food-raving Brits.
