Nickey McKnight grew up in New Orleans where she learned her cooking craft. After moving to California, she learned enough about finance to operate a parallel business specializing in business development programs and helping other entrepreneurs find capital and investing in real estate.
She opened her restaurant in March 2020, unfortunately just in time for the pandemic closings. However, Nickey developed enough take-away business to keep the restaurant going.
Her most popular dish is the crab and shrimp bowl, which includes spicy beef sausage, red potatoes and cajun corn with her signature sauce. Another customer favorite is a shrimp mac-and-cheese bowl.
Her New Orlean’s-style Po-Boy sandwich comes “dressed” – ask Nickey to explain this Louisiana terminology regarding sandwiches.
The restaurant is open every day and seats diners inside and on a patio on the side of the building.
Some Mondays and Tuesdays Boujie’s is closed for private events – call ahead to be sure.
Coming soon: Sunday brunches!
