Pop-up dinners, food truck rallies and a Sunday Purloo brunch – not to mention the Jazz Fest food booths -- top this May Day roundup of dining events.
Grazing at the Fest – May 2-5 - Yes, it’s going to be wet and muddy at the Fair Grounds this weekend, but that only will make you appreciate Prejean’s pheasant, quail and andouille gumbo so much more. If you’re hitting up the New Orleans Jazz Fest’s second weekend – rain or shine – take this challenge: Eat one dish you’ve never tried before. My suggestion: the couscous with sweet yogurt and dried fruit by Gambian Foods at Congo Square. It feels like an antidote to all the butter-rich, cream-heavy fest foods.
Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo – May 17-19 – The Bayou St. John fun-fest has rounded up more than 20 restaurants to feed the crowd. Not to be missed is Ralph’s on the Park’s upscale take on yaka mein with beef brisket and bucatini pasta.
