What’s New at the New Orlean’s Greek Fest 2017?

NEW ORLEANS – This year’s New Orleans Greek Festival on the banks of Bayou St. John will feature a couple of new treats, WGNO reports.

First, look for a new menu item called “meze.” Festival spokeswoman Laila Marcos describes it as a small plate of finger foods– in essence, Greek tapas.

The meze plate will feature tzatziki (a yogurt and cucumber dip), chickpea salad, dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), and pita bread.
