Having read the article below, I'm inspired to find some great versions locally. The idea of Roast Beef or Fried Shrimp or Fried Oyster Po Boys motivates me to find them.
They must be out there! A search mentioned Rack n Soul and Clinton St Baking. Where else?
Agreed. I've probably had five or six po'boys in New York, and as many in New Orleans, and the New Orleans ones were definitely superior. But that doesn't mean one should never eat a po'boy in New York. Sometimes I simply must have fried catfish on a roll, and a mediocre rendition is better than nothing.
