The regular menu at Back Forty West is suspended on Tuesday and Wednesday in honor of Mardi Gras — pop in for a special New Orleans menu focusing on gumbo, Andouille sausage and other Fat Tuesday mainstays. Some regulars on the menu, like the restaurant’s burger, will also be given a Creole/Cajun makeover. Delta Blues, Dixieland and Zydeco will play in the background. 190 Avenue B, 212-388-1992

 

SushiSamba 7’s annual Carnaval is steeped in Brazilian tradition, just like the fusion restaurant’s cuisine. Enjoy samba dancers, batucada drummers, DJs and more as you dive into everything from ceviches to sashimis. 87 Seventh Ave., 212-691-7885

At Brother Jimmy’s, the $35 prix fixe menu gets you three courses of N’Awlins food (think fried okra and po’boys), plus a two-hour open bar and drink specials. While you’re there, collect beads (we won’t tell anyone what you have to do for them), play beer pong and take part in the joint’s other Mardi Gras festivities. Multiple locations, www.brotherjimmys.com
