Oceana Grill Takes Home ‘Best Dish Award’ at Mac N Cheese Festival

NOLA’s Mac N Cheese Festival presented by Waitr returned to Louis Armstrong Park yesterday, Saturday 12, for what turned out to be a beautiful day! From 11am-6pm, folks flocked to the park and got to try all sorts of mac n’ cheese concoctions from over 15 different vendors. 

Amongst all the tasty options, three guest celebrity judges honed in on the cheesiest dish winner: Oceana Grill. Oceana Grill’s offerings included regular mac n’ cheese, shrimp & crawfish mac n’ cheese cone, and mac n’ cheese nachos. Other top contenders included Mac n’ cheese balls with crawfish remoulade, from the House of Blues, vegan mac n’ chili from Original Thought, and lots more tasty options!

Check out some of the posts from the day below.

This is 32 ✌🏼 It’s my birthday and this year I’m embracing the outtakes of life! Our lives can often look perfect on social media – always curated and filtered just right. I’m constantly learning to embrace the imperfect, live in the moment, and spend time doing what I love. Thanks to all of you for following along on this journey as always!
