Crawfish in May
I will be coming down to NO for a conference in early May. I was wondering if that is Crawfish season. If so, where are some places to get some ?
Lucy's on Tchoupitoulas has crawfish on Friday's at 4 PM. Ernst Cafe on S Peters usually has crawfish too.
IMO, K-Jeans on Carrollton (3 doors down from Brocato, on the corner) are very good. Takeout only. Pay the extra $ for "select". Peak season is usually Jazz Fest.
I just spoke yesterday with my Ace Source (his brother is a rice/crawfish farmer in basile) and was told that it should be a "decent" year but nothing remarkable. the stuff he is seeing around Lafayette is small right now. But by May you ought be be OK, depending on how hot it gets and how soon. Usually the season ends in late May/early June
