It's Mardi Gras in New England which generally means restaurants will be adding the word "Creole" and "Cajun" in front of dishes on menus everywhere. But, how true is this to authentic Mardi Gras fare? Chef Paul Turano, chef/owner of Tryst restaurant in Arlington, MA, has taken it upon himself to bring authenticity to his special Mardi Gras dinner being held on Tuesday, March 4th, 2014 from 5:00PM to 10:00PM. Served in addition to Tryst's regular menu, Mardi Gras diners can look forward to experiencing a three-course prix fixe menu available for $35 per person featuring items such as barbequed oysters with creole butter, chicken and sausage gumbo with spicy fried shrimp and jasmine rice and bread pudding "Commander's Palace style" with butter pecan ice cream and rum sauce. That's not all, guests will be able to enjoy authentic cocktails and Hurricanes galore. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by visiting www.trystrestaurant.com.
