The December Hit List: Mister Mao, Seed, Gabrielle, and More

By

It’s holiday season in New Orleans! We all know that, round these parts, the holidays don’t end on January 2. Nope. The holidays run uphill — or downhill, depending on your point of view — all the way through carnival and Mardi Gras. That’s a good three months of boundless festivizing.

And you’re gonna need to eat. This month’s Hit List features a peerless steakhouse, a new Uptown restaurant that tastes like nowhere else in town, one of the finest wine bars we have, and a smart vegan standby. You know, for a festivizing respite.
