The February Hit List: Vals, Miss Shirley’s, Rosedale, and More


Here comes the Carnival finish line!

Mardi Gras lands on the 21st of this month. The endless parade of, well, parades demands sustenance. You can try to live on king cake alone but … that just leads to disaster.

Instead, between festivizing, have some tacos and cocktails at Vals. Or revel in Miss Shirley’s dim sum, now available on Magazine Street. Or keep it homey with a meatloaf sandwich at Rosedale. This year’s Mardi Gras marathon is about complete. And the Resy Hit List is here to keep you well fed amid the revelry.
