Réveillon for the Holidays

72In France, Québec, New Orleans (and other places to be sure), a réveillon is a long dinner party held on Christmas Eve. According to Wikipedia, the name of this dinner is based on the word réveil (meaning “waking”), because participation involves staying awake until midnight and beyond.

If you’ll be in Louisiana then, consider a reservation for such a meal at the Roosevelt New Orleans, 123 Baronne Street, New Orleans, Louisiana. They have an extended schedule for this French dining tradition. They’ll offer a réveillon menu in the Fountain Lounge Friday (November 29, 2013) December 29, 2013.

Other NOLA establishments with réveillon on their agendas include Tujague’s Restaurant (823 Decatur Street) which features traditional specialties, including boiled brisket and shrimp remoulade; Zoe Bistro (333 Poydras Avenue in the W Hotel), which has a five-course feast can start with filet and crab ravioli and end with white chocolate cheesecake, and Bombay Club (830 Conti Street in the Prince Conti Hotel), with such choices as turtle soup, salmon with cranberry rice, English toffee bread pudding and eggnog noel.

A complete list of French Quarter réveillon options is online.
