Food to bring to a Mardi Gras Ball
We are going to a ball this year with some friends (six of us total), and have been tasked with bringing the food. We were thinking of ordering from Cochon Butcher, Verti Marte or Rouses (in that order). Any other good ideas? No seafood because one guest is allergic. We are open otherwise. Unfortunately, we are based in the quarter and due to scheduling/traffic will not be able to go uptown to Langensteins or Martins. Thanks in advance!

A couple of times, we have ordered mini-muffalettas from Rouses, plus a couple of cheeses, crackers, some nice olives, and some kind of nuts. I don't know whether the FQ Rouses does the mini-muffs, but the Warehouse District one does.
Check with Martin's catering. They may deliver the food right to the ball so you don't have to schlepp it yourself.
