Eater NOLA's Guide To Last Minute Valentine's Day Reservations

You should probably be enjoying Mardi Gras parades instead.

Brasted

It's Mardi Gras time, and nobody really seems to be gearing up for a sweet little weekend of quiet, romantic dining with their significant other, while the carnival beast known as Endymion stalks the street outside. Come on. Go watch some parades, eat a po' boy, catch some beads or a stuffed animal dampened by some form of questionable liquid and give it to your loved one already.

Even if you're still up for some good old fashioned romantic dining, good luck trying to find a last minute reservation and a cab during Mardi Gras. Yes, at this point you're probably realizing you've failed as a significant other and should just stay home and cook that one pasta with the vodka sauce and canned artichokes that your spouse says is alright. Because as of right now, these are the best available reservations for parties of two on Saturday night around 7 p.m., courtesy of Opentable. So have at it.
