  1. I'm thinking Mara's Homemade will likely be filled with N'awlins ex-pats. But that is probably the most "appropriate" spot for Mardi Gras if you can get in.

    Jimmy's 43 seems might be a good alternative. They are supposedly coming up with a special Mardi Gras night, exact details have not yet been decided.

    1. Delta grill
      great jones cafe
      people may reccomend mara's but i didnt like it.

        There is really no N'awlins food in NYC that is truly exceptional.

        A good New American gastropub like Jimmy's 43 or the Redhead might be a better bet.

      2. Jimmy's no 43 is doing a Mardi Gras special. They usually put on good events so it should be fun.

        I also recommend Acme. It has everything as far as New Orlens food goes- gumbo, po boys, etc and all the Abita beers and mean hurricanes. I love it.
