Heading down to New Orleans tomorrow for a couple of days. Need recs on where to go for boiled crawfish. Spicier the better. Don't mind a side trip out of town to get them either.
The prolonged cold weather this winter has delayed the crawfish crop. Scarce, small-ish, and expensive right now. Saw some last week at K-Jean's in Mid-City for $4.99/lb. A few other places have them as well, but spotty and pricey.
There is a local seafood joint 'The Boiling Point" specialize in seafood boil in New Iberia, about 30 min. from the city. Ridiculously cheap, simply fresh and good. Recommended by a local 10 years ago, and had revisited last year.
Just got this info: Buy a tray of crawfish and get a free Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager.
