I love seafood/shellfish but husband doesn't. Help!!!

So my husband and I are going to NO in November for a long weekend. I am very much looking forward to sightseeing and eating; he sightseeing and drinking. I love shimp, oysters, crawfish, and everything else of that variety. He however does not. I am looking for some suggestions where we will both be happy. Extra points if the places are pretty inexpensive. I am a big fan of good food that is cheap. Thanks.

  1. Mandina's, The Galley Seafood, Liuzza's, Parkway Bakery, Parasol's are good places for less expansive but expansive menus.

    1. Depending on what "pretty inexpensive means," I would add Cochon, Boucherie (mostly meat but some seafood--all delicious--very reasonable), Jacques-Imo. Meauxbar Bistro is a reasonably priced and very nice place to have dinner. They have catfish, crab cakes, a wonderful fried oyster salad, but also steak, duck, a really good burger.
