MAKE IT RIGHT FOUNDATION
Mardi Gras, meaning Fat Tuesday in French, lives up to its name. For some, the day before Lent is dedicated to flashing their goods for plastic beads, but for many pious foodies it’s a chance to indulge before the start of the yearly fast that accompanies Lent. Mardi Gras is a celebration dedicated to the foods our stomachs adore so tonight, jump right in to a bucket of Cajun crawdads or a heaping serving of gumbo to celebrate this holiday right. Whatever your reason for celebrating Mardi Gras, here are a few great NYC New Orleans-inspired restaurants celebrating today’s holiday in big ways.
