Saffron Nola, is the culmination of the Vilkhu family’s lifetime of passion for culture and food. Their James Beard nomination for Best New Restaurant in 2018 was hard earned after gracing the New Orleans community with a catering business for 26-years and a pop up restaurant for 6-years. In its second year, Saffron Nola continues to garner accolades and charm guests with food and hospitality.

The vision was born from husband and wife team, Arvinder Vilkhu and Pardeep Vilkhu whose journey immigrating from India to New Orleans inspired the joy of marrying their heritage with New Orleans tradition and ingredients. Saffron’s menu is Indian at its core with influence spanning the globe from Chef Arvinder's experiences. Following in his father’s footsteps, Ashwin Vilkhu, Head Chef & GM, uses the same tradition and nuanced flavors to create Saffron’s culinary-focused cocktail menu. Similar spices and ingredients can be seen across the food and beverage menus, creating a cohesive guest experience and offering elevated riffs on classic cocktails. The wine menu is also created in harmony with the kitchen where pairings are thoughtfully selected to highlight spices and flavors found throughout the menu.

The Vilkhu’s mission is to communicate the evolution of Indian Cuisine by making it accessible to guests on a modern stage . Like their dining table at home, the menu is designed for sharing and incorporates things they love from both India and New Orleans. While immigrating to the US, the Vilkhu family was exposed to the bounties of Louisiana, and more importantly, how food underscores the rich culture and community that makes New Orleans so special. Their immediate love and respect for their new home can be seen in Saffron’s use of fresh local ingredients like gulf fish, gulf shrimp, oysters, gumbo, charcuterie, and more; all while using Indian techniques and spices to spotlight the bounties of their local farm partners.

The Vilkhu’s personal touch and care for the guest experience is immediately evident upon welcome. Every detail of the design and conceptualizing of the space is purposeful to create a unique dining experience. However, the most important aspect of the experience is the superior service and hospitality that makes you feel like you are part of the Vilkhu and Saffron family.
