Deanies?

I am coming to town in early April and thinking I may skip one of my usual dining spots for some boiled crawfish. I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast and miss fresh Springtime crawfish now that I live in New York and can usually only find frozen tails from way overseas.

I remember enjoying Deanie's on the lake years ago. Would it be worth one of my few meals in NOLA to stop in the French Quarter location for some crawfish and other treats?

    We've been chatting on here about the supply thus far..small and expensive..so be ready for sticker shock..We all know the price will fall...but when? Anyway, I cannot see Deanie's being a bad choice for that although I kow a lot of people who never cottoned to teh Quarter location. What you need..and maybe someone can help out..is a bar somewhere that has a guy who knows what he is doing

      I think Yo Mama's in the Quarter does a great boil every Friday or Saturday. Call them.

        Or pick some up at K Jeans on Carrollton ( a few doors down from Brocato) and have a picnic in city park. I think Lucy's is boiling them on Fridays. Rouses (grocery) is as well but not sure if this includes the one in the quarter. Friday (3/25) the price was $4.28#, boiled.

      Deanie's on Hayne by Lakefront Airport (no relation to the Bucktown/FQ Deanie's) sometimes has boiled crawfish - call and make sure.
