French Quarter Fest Feast

Anyone have suggestions for what to eat at this year's FQ fest? I just had the Audubon's crawfish bread (tasty albeit exceptionally salty), Crabby Jack's Shrimp and Alligator Sausage Cheesecake (VERY rich; it's like a mac and cheese where the "mac" is replaced with bread crumbs), and The Original New Orleans Po Boys' Shrimp and Okra Stew (I rate this as okay). I've tried Boucherie's Roast Beef Po Boy before (and it is a steal at $5) as well as Bad Bart's Black Jambalaya (super filling and so rich in flavor). I've got only two more days of eating left, and I want to make the most of it.

  1. If you're in Jackson Square, be sure to have the goat cheese crepes with crawfish sauce from Muriel's. Also, the jambalaya from Creole Delicacies is delicious. At the Mint, the tempura soft shell crab poor boy from Oceana is wonderful -- especially if you arrive when they're just coming out of the fryer. As you can see, I'm too wimpy to forge through the crowds at the Riverfront! Enjoy.

      I just had the goat cheese crepes, and they were fantastic! I also had the duck po boy from Jacques Imo's and it was absolutely delicious.
