“Let’s be honest, the New Orleans Jazz Fest isn’t exactly what you’d call “diet friendly” – but there are actually plenty of options among the Fest’s 70-plus food vendors that make it easy to eat clean while still enjoying everything that festival has to offer.
We all have our favorite splurge-worthy indulgences – mine is almost always the Oyster Patty from Patton’s Caterers.
But it’s not my first food stop (and I usually split it with a friend). Instead, as soon as I’m feeling hungry and looking for something to eat on the Fair Grounds, I head straight to Bennachin’s in Congo Square for their Poulet Fricassee and Jama-Jama. Then I’ll have the oyster patty, usually a couple of hours later.“
