Restaurants open during Mardi Gras 2014

February 18 2014

Finding a restaurant to open Mardi Gras can be tricky. Finding one without a line is almost impossible.

Still, if you can’t pack a lunch or if you need a place to grab dinner, here’s a list of restaurants open and/or offering specials on Lundi Gras and Fat Tuesday (March 3-4). 

We’ll keep adding to the list as more restaurants confirm their schedules, so keep checking back to see the latest additions.

Restaurants open during Mardi Gras:

Bourbon Heat - Open and offering a special Mardi Gras package: $150 for balcony access (right on Bourbon Street), food from the buffet, and drinks

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. - Open with regular menu and full service bar.  (And since this is only 3 blocks from the Canal Street parade route, it's a good option to grab a quick sandwich on the way to and from parades.)

Court of Two Sisters - Open with regular menu

Crescent City Brewhouse – Open with regular menu

French Market Restaurant & Bar – Open with regular menu

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant Open, but will be offering a specific Mardi Gras menu
