Even though over a thousand miles separate us from the center of the Carnival celebration in New Orleans, there are plenty of places right around The Kenmore to make you feel as if you’re in the Big Easy. Whether you call it Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, the celebration will be the same!
Acacia Bistro and Wine Bar: Check out their special Mardi Gras menu for the night which will include gumbo, alligator and beignets.
Louisiana Kitchen & Bayou Bar: With their daily menu looking like it is straight from New Orleans, you’ll have no problem indulging in all the classic cajun and creole food, plus it’s a perfect spot to pick up your King Cake!
Looking to explore another neighborhood in the DMV for Mardi Gras? Check out these options from The Washingtonian and Eater DC!
Have fun and as they would say in the Big Easy, laissez les bons temps rouler (let the good times roll)!
