Eat, Drink & Celebrate with Ida Claire this Mardi Gras

Dallas’ Southern Belle invites guests to let the good times roll Feb. 9



Leave it to Ida Claire, the consummate Southern hostess, to serve up a Mardi Gras feast that would make any Cajun scream, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”


Indeed, the good times will be rolling on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 9, when Ida Claire offers a Mardi Gras Menu highlighting several dishes true to her Southern roots:


Creole Gumbo – a spicy combination of chicken, Andouille and basmati rice ($6)


Crawfish Corn Beignets – served with smoked mustard remoulade ($8)


Shrimp & Grits – Texas prawns, lardons, gristmill parmesan grits and sauce piquant ($17)


Of course, it wouldn’t be Fat Tuesday without festive cocktails, so you’d better believe Ida Claire will be serving up her hand-crafted Hurricanes ($8) and Hurricane Punch ($24, for 4-5 people). Every guest who orders a Hurricane drink will receive a Mardi Gras feather mask.


Guests will also be encouraged to post photos on Facebook and Instagram with their masks, using a special hashtag for a chance to win a $50 Ida Claire gift card.


The party begins at 11 a.m., and it won’t be over till Ida says it’s over.


Ida lives at 5001 Belt Line Road in Dallas. Learn more about her at, email her at or give her a ring at 214.377.8227.
