Bangers, Mash, and the Special Relationship

For those who don’t already know, the “special relationship” is a term commonly used to describe the longstanding alliance between the United States and Great Britain. It was coined in a 1946 speech by Winston Churchill, and is often used when referring to shared political diplomatic, and military ventures.

At Nalu, the “special relationship” has a slightly different connotation. We think it’s most appropriately used to describe the magic that happens when an American-owned restaurant in Europe is staffed by one or more British citizens. The melding of transcultural biographies, personalities, and worldviews gives birth to something unique, something truly ineffable. Something you must be at Nalu to experience.

Have we piqued your interest? Then take some time out of your busy schedule this weekend to drop by the diner and treat yourself to a plate full of bangers and mash—a British comfort food classic. Warming English fare served in an even warmer American setting: few things embody the “special relationship” quite like this.
