The Hit ListNew Orleans

The January Hit List: Bar Brine, Galatoire’s, Pho Tau Bay, Marjie’s Grill, and More


Come Twelfth Night, aka Epiphany, aka January 5, Carnival begins. And with it begins the weeks-long run-up toward Mardi Gras. Remember, people: Carnival is a marathon, not a sprint.

And like any good marathoner, you’re going to need to eat smart. This month’s Hit List runs the field, from grande-dame fine dining and big-flavored stalwarts, to the optimal place for a comforting Vietnamese beef stew. Bring an appetite, and play the long game.
