Where To Get Fat on Tuesday In and Around the Quarter

View as Map

During the marathon that is Mardi Gras, and more importantly Mardi Gras day, it's important to stop and refuel, or you're guaranteed to, as they say, "hit the wall." It's difficult enough just to walk around and get your drank on in costume, so how does one even go about eating in the midst of such endless partying and mobs of people?

Open houses and cookies handed to you by strangers are one way to go about satiating that epic drunk-as-all-hell hunger, but you can't always rely on heavily trafficked humus dip and hallucinations to get you through the day. While we strongly suggest you eat an extremely hearty breakfast, Here's Where To Get Fat on Tuesday In and Around the Quarter to help stave off total obliteration.

Killer Po-boys

Copy Link
This underground hot spot in the Erin Rose will be open 11 a.m. "til it just don't make sense no more," says Chef Cam Boudreaux. They have New Orleans fare like red beans and rice, catfish courtbouillon, muffuletta, and a small selection of po' boys.

Dreamy Weenies

Copy Link
Unless it's an utter emergency, one should avoid the Lucky dogs at all cost and opt for a vegan, falafel, or "Genchilli" dog with seasoned waffle fries at this newish hot dog favorite on Rampart instead.

Owner Sean McCusker says, "We'll be open and running a limited menu. We open at 10 a.m. and go until we run out or customers pass out, usually around 3 or 4 p.m." Chic-Sylvain sandwich, anyone?

Domenica

Copy Link
Alon Shaya and company will hold down their normal hours, and are taking reservations (strongly suggested) for Mardi Gras day. Pizza, pastas, charcuterie, and more upscale eats take the drunkypantsness down a notch.

Saint Lawrence

Copy Link
There won't be any table service at the frozen Pimm's Cup daiq and gourmet bar food hotness, but there will be a kiosk set up by the door where you can order from a limited menu, eat in or take out.

Sukho Thai

Copy Link
Open 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., summer rolls, pad thai, drunken noodles, and lots of curries help sop up all that early day drinking, but beware they only do take out on Mardi Gras Day.

Coop's Place

Copy Link
Open at 11 a.m. with fried chicken, red beans and rice, and other drunk food standards. Most likely there will be a line out the door, but waiting is just like hanging out in front of your favorite Decatur bars anyways.

Port of Call

Copy Link
Open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., burgers and Monsoons keep the Mardi Gras day sobriety balancing act in check. Not suggested for those on stilts.

Fat Falafel

Copy Link
Newish food truck Fat Falafel is quickly becoming a favorite for their crunchy falafel, fries and even cauliflower "tempura." According to their website, they'll be parked at the 1618 OC Haley at 10:30 a.m. on Mardi Gras Day, in case you're walking/biking to and from the Quarter from Uptown, but check with their Twitter for last minute updates.

Camellia Grill

Copy Link
Burger, fries, omelets covered in chili: it's a veritable sloppy drunken den of deep fried fatty goodness that will help you make it a few more hours. Opens at 8 a.m.

Stanley

Copy Link
Open 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. Great bloody maries, gluttonous breakfast and lunch fare like Eggs Benedict po boys and gumbo ensure a line out the door for coveted window seats with a view of Jackson Square.

Clover Grill

Copy Link
If you're on Bourbon Street for Mardi Gras (first of all WHY?), going to the Clover Grill for a burger fried under a hub cap is one way to stave off passing out on the street and waking up in jail.
