MIO Hosts a Celebration of New Orleans on Tuesday

Stefanelli is proud to help support this effort in restoring vitality and stability to the residents of this region. Celebratory toasts will kick-off the evening at Mio's sleek bar and lounge.

Special 'Hurricane' cocktails will be served all night long as an ode to the French Quarter's mainstay, ensuring a night of cheer and southern carryin' on. Guests can look forward to a bayou-inspired menu of Charbroiled Rappahannock River Oysters, Barbecue Shrimp with Potato Pancakes, Roasted Pork with Red Beans and Rice, and Beignets with a Coffee Chicory Milkshake ending the meal on a sweet note.
