Po'boys in Burlington, VT?

All the talk about Mardi Gras has got me wanting a good shrimp po'boy. I'd imagine some of the local restaurants are offering Louisiana fare this weekend in honor of the parade. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

  1. Unless the restaurant in question (I don't know of any that are doing this) had a stellar reputation, I wouldn't even bother. I have yet to find any great southern cuisine that really -works- up here. Not that I'm an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I have been in southern areas, have had what I'm assured were good shrimp po'boys, and I've not managed to find anything like it up this a-ways. :) If someone else has heard of such, though... please tell! :)

    1. re: Morganna

      I have to agree with Morganna. I have had okay oyster po'boys in ME, but nothing I would swoon over...never thought to look the times I've been in VT visiting relatives. Kind of like the same response CH's give when asking about transcendent Mexican food in northern MA/NH, etc. This might be one of those "you're better off making it yourself" things, if you're inclined.

    2. unless there is a nola transplant in VT ..i dont think they will even know what u are talking about when u ask for one ....
      i think the best bet would probably be to make one yourself...
