The Rundown on the 8 New Foods at Jazz Fest 2019

Published on: April 30th, 2019

There are 8 new foods, from 5 different vendors, at Jazz Fest 2019. In no particular order...

(1)Redfish Baquet, from Baquet's Li'l Dizzy Café in Heritage Square (between the Jazz and Blues tents). Excellent, and the portions are large: the photo below shows less than half of a serving.

(2)Yucca Fries with Chimichurri, from Congreso Cubano in Food Area I.
If you've never had yucca, it's like a potato with more texture and flavor, and it goes great with the bright chimichurri sauce. Perfect for sharing.

(6)Oyster Rockefeller Bisque, from TJ Gourmet Food Area II.
Delicious bisque based on the iconic dish invented in 1889 at the New Orleans restaurant Antoine's.
