Hungry for Southern culinary escape? Miss Clawdy has arrived

Hungry for a Southern culinary escape? Miss Clawdy has arrived

Auckland City’s North Wharf entices food enthusiasts with the arrival of Miss Clawdy, a Southern American styled culinary haven. Inspired by the late Lloyd Price’s 1952 New Orleans hit single, ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, the new place on the block feeds hungry hearts with edible goodness wrapped in a little southern magic.

Much like the streets of Southern America, your first experience into Miss Clawdy’s kitchen is a vibrant flurry of hot plates, fresh flavours and red-lipped belles. Miss Clawdy praises the soul, heart and essence of sharing, derived from southern cuisine.

Miss Clawdy’s kitchen isn’t shy when it comes to cooking. The flavours are big, playful and have attitude. The menu aims to inspire and be relished anytime of the day. From southern fried oyster po’ boys, prawn and green papaya salad, jambalaya with crayfish and Bourbon butter and a soul arresting key lime pie are a taste of the dishes on offer. Miss Clawdy is a place named for a song and is as inviting for a sole diner as for a group of twenty.

Designed by Cheshire Architects, the restaurant is lavished in hand-made patterns and vibrant colours, visually reflecting the rich tension between poverty and celebration in the south. Hand painted floors and plants that peek through the cracks in the woodwork draw on the life-giving richness of the old southern Mississippi tropics.

This delicious prodigy owes credit to the Wiley Boys – an empire of brothers Tom and Jeff, and father Dennis Wiley, who established other infamous Auckland eateries including Hammerheads, Sausalito, Mink and Squid Row.

“Having grown up in a family with strong values around spending time together over meals, Miss Clawdy embodies all of this with an extra bit of cheek and attitude,” says Tom Wiley. Their mission: to magnify the importance of getting out, sharing good food and fiercely celebrating today.

Miss Clawdy officially opens the first week of August 2013 on 12 Jellicoe Street, Auckland’s North Wharf.
