Cajun cuisine comes to The BLVD!

Head chef, Anthony Grove (far right), said Brittany's on The BLVD is a "taste of Louisiana in an easy-going atmosphere."

Councilmember Sandra Johnson joins workers for a picture outside The BLVD's newest restaurant.

LANCASTER – Jambalaya, red beans and rice, and seafood gumbo are just some of the entrees on the menu at Brittany’s on the Boulevard, a new restaurant on The BLVD specializing in Cajun/Creole cuisine.

“It’s all Louisiana,” said head chef Anthony Grove. “We’re offering Cajun cuisine in a nice easy going atmosphere.”

Monday several City officials and Councilmembers gathered at the restaurant to celebrate its grand opening.  

Brittany’s facade was beautified with assistance from the City’s Commercial Property Improvement Program (CPIP).

“As the only Cajun restaurant, Brittany’s adds a wonderful and exciting new flavor to The BLVD,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris in a City news release.

Brittany’s is owned by registered pharmacist Hannah Mason and Dr. Eugene Rajaratnam.

The new restaurant offers a wide array of traditional cajun dishes.

The restaurant offers  traditional Cajun dishes such as  jambalaya, red beans and rice, and seafood gumbo on the dinner menu, with lighter fare such as salads, curries, and wraps for lunch. Its menu was inspired by Mason’s frequent visits to New Orleans, with the addition of a few Indian specialties.

The restaurant is named after Mason’s daughter, Brittany, and the restaurant’s sign features an image of Mason’s son, Brandon.

“I feel like it’s going to be a great success because we have a lot of great cooks here and a lot of great people,” said Brandon Mason, adding that he will be working at the restaurant in whatever capacity needed.

Johnson was among the first to sample the restaurant's cuisine Monday and gave rave reviews.

The co-owners plan to host cooking classes in the restaurant’s kitchen, as well.

Brittany’s is not only a restaurant, we will also be a learning center, devoted to teaching people in our community healthy living,” Hannah Mason said in the City release. “We’ve dubbed ourselves the ‘California Wellness Kitchen.’”

Brittany’s on the Boulevard is located at 628 Lancaster Boulevard. Initially, the restaurant will be open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week. Brittany’s also offers catering.

    Sorry. I tried it twice, the Jambalaya was mediocre the first time and less than mediocre the second. The place is not that good.

    I enjoyed lunch today @Brittany’s on the Blvd. I had the Po boy fish and shrimp sandwich. The fish was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The fish batter was so light, it felt like it was melting in your mouth. The question is not will I return? But I how many meals may I eat through. Thank you Hannah for bring, fine Cajun food to Lancaster

    Really, I don,t feel safe going on the Blvd if crime is so do you promote businesses and fear in your community
    at the same time?

      What are you talking about??? Sounds like you haven’t even been down to the Blvd. Crime has been dropping; that’s the biggest priority out there. What makes you think they promote fear?

        Crime is dropping? How much vodka are you drinking? The AV Press reported a crime surge 2 days after the election.
