Boucherie, Rue 127, or La Crepe Nanou?

If ONLY eating at one of the above-listed restaurants, which would you choose for two people who eat seafood (oysters, shrimp, crab, etc.) but NO chicken or red meat? We don't mind having a limited menu (i.e. having just two or three dishes and a couple appetizers to choose from is fine), but if the pork or chicken dish is the ONLY item that makes one of these restaurants worth attending, then it probably wouldn't be worth it for us to go. What would you suggest?

Edit: I meant to list Jacques-Imos on here too but forgot! Although I've heard some varying opinions on the quality of their food...

  1. Le Crepe Nanou. I haven't been there in several years but their crab crepes were really good. Afterwards you can walk over to Creole Creamery :-)

    Boucherie doesn't offer much seafood I don't think. The only time I remember having any there was a bbq shrimp poboy and it was not good.

    1. You will wait on line for awhile at Jacques unless you get there when they open. Your reward will be mediocre food. Rue 127 has a mussels app and as I recall, one fish entree. That's it for seafood. Boucherie has a lot of creatively plated bbq.

      1. None of those are particularly noteworthy seafood restaurants. Boucherie is one of my favorite places but not seafood-centric. Never been to Rue 127. Le Crepe Nanou is a classic French bistro and certainly has some seafood but that is not the primary focus. If you are constrained to those 4, I would unfortunately have to submit Jacques-Imo's.

        1. Fat Harry - in that case, do you have any particular similarly-minded restaurants with great seafood or veggie dishes?

          1. You seem to want to stay in the uptown area, so here is a list of Uptown restaurants:
