Treat Yo’ Self To An Elegant Reveillon Dinner

There’s nothing Louisiana babes love more than traditions, and the holidays come with plenty of them. From seeing the lights at The Roosevelt to having a Reveillon dinner at one of the finest restaurants in town, our city has many holiday customs unique to NOLA to look forward to each year.

Since the 19th century, many of the best restaurants in town have offered Reveillon dinners in the month of December. The decadent four-course holiday feasts with all the trimmings are the perfect way to treat yo’self with your babes, your boo,  or the whole family this holiday season.

We’ve rounded up participating restaurants for every type of babe and outing, and the items on their special menus we can’t stop thinking about this year. Learn more about the history behind Revelleillon dinners here.
