It’s Mardi Gras at Big Jones! Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Always our favorite way to warm up the Chicago winter, Mardi Gras is upon us! For those not lucky enough to be spending the holiday in New Orleans, we continue our annual tradition of rolling out the Mardi Gras classics, and in a nice little twist this year, we’re also extending our Restaurant Week menu through Fat Tuesday, in case you’d like to celebrate with a special multi-course deal.

If you’re been here for Mardi Gras before, you’ll have a pretty good idea what’s in store – rich and decadent boudin, creamy crawfish etouffee, oyster-loaded po’ boys, buttery king cake, and more. Here are links to the menus along with a schedule for when theyre available:

Mardi Gras Lunch 2016 : Friday, February 5 and Monday and Tuesday, February 8th & 9th from 11 am until 4 p.m.

Dinner Mardi Gras 2016 : Friday, February 5 though Tuesday, February 8th from 5 pm until close

Dessert Mardi Gras 2016 : available all the time when we’re open!

Brunch will be our regular menu Saturday and Sunday. Beignets for all!

Fat Tuesday reservations are filling up fast as is the weekend. Call soon to book your seat! 773-275-5725
