So a couple of years ago we had this idea to have a food festival with every restaurant, food truck, deli counter, whatever that had been reviewed in Gambit over the previous year — sort of a mashup of everything we liked.
We called it the Gambit Food Revue — and the results exceeded our expectations (and yours, apparently — it has sold out every year).
The 3rd annual Gambit Food Revue will be March 6 at the Pavilion of the Two Sisters in New Orleans City Park. Like last year, we'll have a ton of food — as well as free beer, wine and cocktails, as well as music — all included for one price. We have about 30 vendors lined up and we're aiming for 40+ that night. It's something like a food truck roundup, except with restaurants. And it's indoors.
Like last year, we're partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana. Attendees will be asked to bring a canned item (or several), and at the end of the night any leftovers will go home with the Second Harvest people.
Tickets are only $45 for all you care to eat ($70 for early admission), and it's a great chance to try dozens of restaurants for what adds up to the price of a single meal at many New Orleans eating establishments. Each year has sold out quickly, so get your tickets now. And if you're undecided, take a look at the 2011 event:
