A Hair Metal brunch, Carnival tea and more best bets for Lundi Gras.

The Monday before Mardi Gras may offer some much needed down-time for some Carnival goers, but if you've never made it over to the French Quarter for a traditional Lundi Gras lunch and revelry, Ian McNulty suggests that now is the time.

While spots like Arnaud's, Antoine's, Bayona and Broussard's have made Lundi Gras dining a tradition, a handful of incredible new restaurants—and one established restaurant that's usually closed for lunch on Mondays—are now getting in on the action come February 8.

Here are six awesome new Lundi Gras specials to try this year (reservations highly encouraged).

Angeline: Hair Metal Brunch. There will apparently be "Mama I'm Coming Home Fries."

Brennan's: Extended champagne happy hour downstairs.

Cane & Table: Latin-infused brunch specials with a specialty bottomless drinks list.

Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse: Normally not open on Mondays, the restaurant will serve a special menu of steaks, salads, and sandwiches.

Meauxbar: A three-course brunch will include the likes of king cake scones, shrimp and grits and sweet potato beignets.

Salon By Sucre: a Carnival-themed brunch and tea service includes king cake croissants and mini muffulettas.
