NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Gris-Gris is celebrating the holidays Voodoo-style with its first annual Mangé Loa Holiday Menu! Mangé Loa – meaning ‘the feeding of the Gods’ – is a Voodoo ceremony and large annual feasting of the gods (‘loa’) featuring a variety of animal offerings, drinks, desserts and more. Followers of Voodoo believe the powers of all loa are lifted to their highest potential during this celebration. And since we’ve had a crazy year – and will need all the superpowers we can get – Gris-Gris is celebrating Mangé Loa Dec. 7 – 24.
The four-course pre-fixe menu ($65) will be available Dec. 7 – 24 (dinner only) and feature Chef Cook’s top loa offerings – herb-roasted Cornish hen, duck, chicken and andouille gumbo, cast iron seared fish and lobster and so much more! Wine pairings by The Prisoner Wine Company are available for an additional $35. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at (504) 272-0241.
