Food for Thought 2/23 – 2/27

Tomorrow night happens to be Fat Tuesday, and lucky for us, the New Orleans folks won’t be the only ones celebrating Mardis Gras this year!

Mardis Gras Celebrations

  • Mara’s Homemade over in the East Village has whipped up a special Mardis Gras menu just for Fat Tuesday. Although Mara’s serves Cajun food all year round, I think you’ll be more than satisfied with their Mardis Gras selection. And for a limited time only they will be serving New Orleans finest Abita beer on tap!
  • Fat Tuesday’s at Acme Bar & Grill– At Acme Bar & Grill Fat Tuesday lives on forever. With top notch Cajun cuisine, ABG is sure to round up an interesting local crowd for their Fat Tuesday parties, which are held the first Tuesday every month. I can attest to their food, but not their DJ.

The Long Island Fare

  • After living in Manhattan for the last three years, I forgot all about the good Long Island Fare. Stay tuned for posts on Plainview’s infamous Coffee Shop and Martoni’s.


  • I just can’t keep avoiding this post, so keep an eye out for my brunch recommendations.
