Next month, I'm headed to New Orleans for a weeklong feast, which means second breakfasts and probably second lunches and dinners too. Luckily, Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday fall in the next few days which makes for the perfect pre-NOLA stomach-stretching exercise. Whether you're getting ready for a big eating trip or just feeling nostalgic for the Big Easy, here's where to send yourself into a food coma.
Brenda's French Soul Food
Brenda's French Soul Food and Libby Jane Cafe have your sweet tooth covered. Libby Jane will be featuring mini King Cakes through Tuesday ($7.50) while Brenda's is blowing our minds with King cake beignets. What's a King Cake beignet you ask? It's simply a beignet stuffed with berry compote, vanilla cream cheese, and pecans, colorful powdered sugar included ($4.50 each).
