French-Inspired Food and Drinks
Cajun connoisseurs and newcomers to Creole cuisine are sure to get a cultural helping at Universal’s Mardi Gras. Setting the ultimate backdrop to this themed event, the New York section of Universal Studios Florida™ transforms into a French Quarter Courtyard where you can revisit your favorite foods and try some new ones, too.
To feed your appetite for authenticity, the park is offering sample and full-sized classics like catfish po’ boys, jambalaya, and crab étouffée. If you’ve got a sweet tooth to satisfy, swipe a slice of traditional purple, green, and gold king cake or a powdery order of beignets with your choice of indulgent dipping sauces. Adults can also partake in specialty Mardi Gras drinks, including Ragin’ Rumbalaya and Vicious Voodoo cocktails.
