Mardi Gras and Jazz in New York City’s Meatpacking District

Come hear jazz at Brasserie Beaumarchais in Manhattan for Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras in Manhattan with a dish like pommes et champignons? That’s right, roasted apples and trumpet mushrooms, served with serrano ham on truffle Mornay sauce, to fittingly celebrate Fat Tuesday. What about the daube de boeuf, a dish of succulent braised short ribs that you mustn’t miss? Brasserie Beaumarchais on 13th Street in New York City’s Meatpacking District serves this stunning food to the sounds of the Avalon Jazz Band from Paris, making you feel like you’re right there on Bourbon Street.

“Mardi Gras is always something that we celebrate,” says one of the owners, Corey Lane. “We know how to put a party together and this year we're doing something a little different. Since we’ve started our Jazz Tuesdays, we thought New Orleans inspired jazz tunes would be the perfect way to pay homage to Mardi Gras, while still incorporating our regular jazz. Avalon Jazz Band is great at riffing on the classic jazz so our diners will be very entertained over a delicious dinner.”

Tired of the bitter cold and unable to get down to Mardi Gras in New Orleans? Jazz Tuesday is on Feb. 12 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., bringing jazz, Mardi Gras, and flying beads to New York City:  a perfect replacement for the real Fat Tuesday. Not only will you hear some sweet and radiant jazz, but you can catch the proverbial flying beads while feasting on Beaumarchais’ winter menu.
