Who needs New Orleans?
There's no need to hop a plane and fight the crowds to eat great New Orleans food this Mardi Gras season. Just head over to South City Kitchen Midtown and Vinings this week. Through March 8 both locations feature "A Taste of New Orleans" - a three-course, prix fixe dinner menu at $32 per person (excluding tax and gratuity). There's pan-roasted BBQ shrimp, oysters a la Drago, alligator and andouille sausage gumbo, chopped romaine salad, crab and crawfish ravigote or chicken liver and bacon beignets for starters. Entrée choices include cornmeal fried catfish, pan-seared chicken Rochambeau with country ham, pan-seared gulf fish with crawfish étouffée or veal grillades and grits. For dessert choose between cherry-cheese clafouti or chocolate voodoo drunken zombie cake. You can order a la carte from this menu too. Or, if you'd rather, the regular menu is also available.
Enjoy New Orleans without leaving Atlanta!
