Marchdi Gras Highlights
Mini Monte Cristos with bourbon maple from Chef Paul Gerard. Paul is the chef and co-owner of the East Village restaurant Exchange Alley, where he dishes up New Orleans-inspired cuisine in NYC style.
The Fountain of Youth cocktail from mixologist Alex Ott. Alex has lived on six continents but calls New York home, where he exploded on the scene with his inventive concoctions and appearances on “Sex & the City”. His Fountain of Youth cocktail is full of fresh cucumber, white cranberry & lime flavors and is guaranteed not to cause a hangover.
Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution is often touted as one of the best live bands in the land & in 2011 won the Independent Music Awards "Best Live Performance" category. This 12-piece musical explosion blends New Orleans, jazz, soul and R&B for a fun and energizing performance. See them in action.
