New Orleans in Manhattan?
Will be in NYC on Fat Tuesday -- looking for an appropriate place to eat...suggestions?
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.
