A few drops of Tabasco can change a dish. This week, Tabasco will be changing entire menus as part of a special promotion turning up in restaurants across New Orleans.

The New Iberia-based hot sauce maker is marking its 150th anniversary in 2018, and as part of its marketing campaign the company has a Tabasco Restaurant Week planned from Jan. 28 through Feb. 3.

It plays out at more than 40 New Orleans restaurants. Some have individual dishes featuring Tabasco as a prominent ingredient. Others have assembled multi-course menus for the offer.

There are famous name restaurants on the list – Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Galatoie’s and Tujague’s, for instance. And there are also newer additions, like Maypop, Curio Rosedale and Toups South.

Chefs have worked Tabasco into sauces, marinades, and even desserts (see the Tabasco-infused grilled pineapples on the vinegar pie at Bayona).
