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.

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?

(504) 598-1010
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.
