Alligator at Bo’s Kitchen & Bar Room

Get yer gator on for Mardi Gras!

It’s Fat Tuesday, y’all! In honor of the festive tradition of Mardi Gras, go “full gator” at this Flatiron spot, where the Big Easy meets the Big Apple. The showstopper float on the menu parade here: chunks of tail meat from a scaly swamp-thing served up as hot, crunchy fritters ($13), with a kicky chili aioli so tasty it would make Bayou bark palatable. The snack is not only a great bar nibble, furnishing a hearty stomach-cushion for a night of swilling Sazerac cocktails, it also provides a fitting finish to festivities before embarking on the traditional Lenten fast.

The restaurant was opened in fall 2013 by chef/partner Todd  Mitgang, who also cooks at Crave Fishbar. And he knows his way around other Crescent City staples, such as redfish, serving it with parsnip, Sharon fruit and okra in crab sauce ($29). And in the true spirit of its inspiration, the atmosphere at Bo’s is celebratory, especially in the attached Garden District Lounge, a music venue where you can expect the bon temps to rouler tonight with a live brass band. Don’t forget your beads!
