  1. Bloody Mary's - Molly's at the Market on Decatur (next door to coops)
    Seafood Gumbo- Coops on Decatur
    Po-Boys - Get a magazine st. bus fare & head to Mahoney's for a peacemaker

    1. Chart Room for Bloody Mary's.
      the seafood gumbo at Muriel's is very good. Mt. B's also offers a seafood gumbo, and at lunch, the Mary's are $1.50.

          Bloody Mary's --- Royal House on Royal
          Seafood Gumbo ---- Mena's Palace on Chartres

        2. Boiled crawfish is $$$ right now so be prepared. Johnny's is your best bet for real-deal po-boys. It's 3rd generation owned whereas Mahoney's is an $$ newcomer serving good, but faddish po-boys. Lots of places have good gumbo - Desire Oyster Bar has an excellent dark roux gumbo.

          1. I love Muriel's for bloody marys
