The Hit ListNew Orleans

The February Hit List: SoBou, Saffron, Sidecar, and More


The. End. Is. Nigh.

Carnival is running headlong toward its finish line on March 1. Everyone is drowning in king cake (buy the next cake if you get the baby!). The concentration of parades rolling is increasing by the hour. Those who costume are neck-deep in frocks and beads and baubles and glitter.

We must eat. And drink. As we always do in New Orleans, but even more so during this most festive of festive times. Swath yourself in the aromas of good Jamaican jerk. Slurp an oyster either in an Indian vein or in a French one. Go luxe with a dry-aged steak. This month’s Hit List knows what you need.
