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 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.
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.
