What: BBQ ribs plate
Where: Heritage Square
Why: Use both hands when carrying this brimful combination plate from Down Home Creole Cookin’, which sets up shop between the Blues Tent and the Jazz Tent. Not so smoky, these pork ribs are attuned to the traditions of the parade route, with a heavy dose of sweet sauce and a caramelized crust. Add meaty white beans and slaw for a picnic-sized portion that’s right for sharing.
