Wildwood Mardi Gras Menu: A Taste of New Orleans

Jambalaya: A Spicy Medley of Flavors

The star of the menu was undoubtedly the Jambalaya, a classic New Orleans dish that combines diced chicken, spicy Italian sausage, shrimp, green and red peppers, and onions in a rich tomato sauce with perfectly cooked risotto rice. At just $30, this hearty and flavorful dish was a hit among the crowd.

Po' Boys: A Sandwich Sensation

For those craving a taste of the Big Easy’s famous sandwich, MudHen offered their take on the Po’ Boy. Guests had the choice of fried shrimp or oyster, served on a ciabatta bread with coleslaw, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a zesty Cajun cream sauce. At $18, it was the perfect handheld treat to enjoy between dancing and sipping on festive drinks.

Liliana's U-Peel Shrimp: A Hands-On Delight

Seafood lovers were in for a treat with Liliana’s U-Peel Shrimp. This interactive dish featured 12 succulent shrimp, ready to be peeled and enjoyed alongside a refreshing Pilsner beer, Old Bay seasoning, Cajun butter, and lemon. Served with corn on the cob, baked beans, and cornbread, this $28.50 feast was a fun and tasty way to celebrate Mardi Gras.

James Day and The Fish Fry: The Sounds of Bourbon Street

No Wildwood Mardi Gras celebration would be complete without the soulful sounds of New Orleans jazz.
