Bitesize: So Solid Krewe

Posted 2 months ago in Food & Drink Features

Four years after bringing their New Orleans inspired mardi gras to Capel Street, Krewe South continues the party on the southside in Charlemont Square. The menu, created in collaboration with Head Chef Niall Smyth, takes inspiration from the flavour of Cajun creole cuisine from classic jambalaya to OG po’boys.

“We tasted the best of food around the French quarter Po-Boys in Turkey & Wolf; Killer Po-Boys in Erin Rose; Jambalaya in GW Finns; Famous Fried Chicken in Willie Mae’s; Pecan Pie in The Camellia Grill and Beignets in Café du Monde,” say the ownership trio of Conor McCrohan, Michael Monaghan and Belinda Kelly.

Zurdie has executed a bespoke graffiti wall outside the front of the venue and inside two very large scale pieces have been completed by Irish artist sumsone.

Krewe also continues its buzzy interior trend with a disco ball in the unisex toilets. Starters start from €9, mains start from €14, cocktails start from €13.

Opening hours are Monday – Sunday 12 noon until late.
