Spice Up Your Summer with Signature Dishes at Jazz Fest
The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival has been an exciting New Orleans tradition since 1970, when Mahalia Jackson joined the Eureka Jazz Band in her famously spirited parade performance. Forty-five years later, this internationally renowned event has expanded to include much more than just a few musicians and is revered for its signature festival cuisine almost as much as its legendary performances.
People travel from all over the world to see the global icons on stage and peruse the gorgeous local art, but local festival devotees and savvy travelers alike know that the hidden gems of Jazz Fest can be found amidst the tastes and smells of true New Orleans cuisine.
The Windsor Court family is no exception, so check out some of their favorite Jazz Fest dishes below:
- David Teich, General Manager: Cochon De Lait Poboy
- Noel Minturn, Concierge: Pheasant, Quail & Andouille Gumbo
- Daniel Causgrove, Chef de Cuisine: Alligator Pie
And don’t forget about before and after the festival, when The Grill Room at Windsor Court becomes your haven for contemporary Southern cuisine. Whether you’re in the mood for a fresh and healthy breakfast before the festival or a relaxing, indulgent dinner after a long day at the fairgrounds, revel in the comfort of luxury at New Orleans’ only four-star/four-diamond restaurant.
