Casamento's or Parasol's?

If you had to pick one, which would it be and why?
Thanks!

    Casamento's is almost strictly an oyster joint. They open and close with oyster season. If you're looking for oysters go there.

    If you're looking for a poboy joint, Parasol's is your bet. In addition to domilise's and parkway, Guy's is good, too.

      Seafood is what Casamento's does really well. Great oysters, and a killer fried oyster loaf.

      If it's non-seafood po'boys you're after, consider a roast beef po'boy at Parkway, or a hot sausage po'boy at Domilese's.

        If it's a Sunday- then Parasols. They might win by default b/c Casamento's isn't open every day.

        We ate at Patasols last Sunday, and the bread was totally brittle. Either over "warmed" or stale, or maybe both. It was very diapointing, but there aren't too many places to get a poboy on a Sunday night.
