Before the Super Bowl swept into town, Eater asked readers to tell us their favorite bars and restaurants to hit up during Mardi Gras parades. From those responses and our favorites, may we now introduce a map of Where to Eat Along the Parade Routes.
Most of these places are along St. Charles Avenue (with a couple Mid City destinations for Endymion), as the majority of replies we got were focused on big parades that roll from Uptown? ie. Muses, Krewe d'Etat, Bacchus. Some Eater tipsters offered up these wise words of caution: "Do not fall into the temptation of cardboard pizza from the big chains sold on St. Charles Ave. You think it sucks normally? Bad news. Avoid at all costs." The map includes fine dining establishments, bars, a hotel, delivered meals, and take out sandwiches. A little something for everyone, including kids.
Be on the lookout for our Where to Eat on Mardi Gras Day map later this week.
