Good mudbugs in NYC? Crawfish boil catering?

Kanger Jul 27, 2006 05:37 PM

Where can I find good Cajun-style crawfish in the city (preferably in Manhattan)? Looking more for a crawfish-boil type place where they serve them by the dozens, as opposed to an étouffée or on a po'boy.

Also, I know there used to be a catering company in Manhattan that catered crawfish boils, but I think they folded. Anything else like that around?

    Crawfish season is over so I'd be surprised if you could find a restaurant, especially in NYC, where you could get boiled crawfish made from live crawfish. Frozen crawfish tail meat is available year round.

      Try Mara's Homemade on E. 6th St btwn 1st and 2nd. Pretty straight forward Cajun Crawfish boil with potato and corn, newspaper on the table. I really enjoy their fried chicken and deep fried pickles. http://www.marashomemade.com/
