It’s called a Réveillon (REV-ee-on) Dinner and this is the story behind it. In French, New Orleans’ original language, the word “réveillon” means “awakening.” Today dozens of New Orleans restaurants offer Réveillon Dinners all December long with menus inspired by the Creole families who began the tradition. If you make your way to New Orleans in December, be sure to indulge in the tradition.
