If you’re in the mood for a little Cajun or a little carnival (or both!) on your palate today, I’d recommend Southern Accent, located in Mirvish Village on Markham St. off of Bloor and Bathurst. Think bourbon chicken, collard greens, cheese grits, jambalaya, gumbo, okra and corn bread, bread pudding, and lots of hush puppies! Fabulous atmosphere, delicious food, and cheeky, fun, flashy decor to boot! There are plenty of options on the regular menu in addition to the different daily price fixe. I won’t be going myself tonight (I’m reserving my next trip there for spring, actually), but I wanted to share a bunch of photos from the few times I’ve been there to celebrate the day. Whether you practice Catholicism (as Mardi Gras is traditionally the religious celebration prior to Lent) or you’re just in it for the festivities, I hope you all have fun! 😀
Southern Accent is located at 595 Markham Street in Mirvish Village, just slightly southwest of Bloor St. W and Bathurst St. It’s about a 3-5 minute walk from Bathurst subway station and they open their doors for dinner at 5pm.
