Boiled Crabs, Where?
Will be in New Orleans in early June and seek boiled crabs in "typical" informal restuarant. As former residents of New Orleans, my wife and I have fond memories of crabs served on beer trays at Brunings by the lake and even earlier eating at Fitzgeralds.
I know these great places are now gone. Please suggest restaurants that come close to providing similar fare and environment. We have a car and can drive to the provinces (i.e. West Bank, Metaire, etc.) if necessary.
If you want a scenic drive to an informal restaurant with good food try The Crab Trap in LaPlace. The menu is pretty much just boiled seafood so you may want to call & see what's in the pot before you go.
Take I-10 west to the first LaPlace exit. Go right onto 51 & take a right on Peavine Road (there's a boat launch sign there). Go til you can't go no mo and it's on the right.
