        1. re: kevin

          I think that it's fairly priced. I guess that we can await Mr. Taster's verdict on that.

        2. re: ns1

          It was right there under the Mac & Cheese! ;>)

          1. re: JAB

            OMFG!!!!!

            Crawfish Monica in (this) LA (I happen to hate that shit but am glad to see it here).

            And Irish Channel RB po'boys - It's like Tracy's on Magazine done come to LA too.

            WOP salad is freaky. Even in Louisiana few will even admit that they remember that name for an Italian Salad.

            This. Is. Just. Amazing.

            I am completely blown away by the legitimacy and I have not even had a bite.

              i'm not a fan of crawfish monica, but then again i hate fettucine alfredo.

              1. re: Ciao Bob

                I had a 1/4 of an Irish Channel Roast Beef Parish Fair Sandwich and it was really good!

                1. re: Ciao Bob

                  Not sure that is really crawfish monica, I have made it and it is more than just mac & cheese with crawfish. I am just saying.

                  1. re: Burger Boy

                    I wonder if this was ChefMarkvs' attempt at giving Crawfish Monica a name that would be understandable to a non-NOLA crowd (akin to Oaxacan tlayudas = "Mexican pizza", or 牛肉捲餅 = Chinese burritos :)

                    Or, is "Crawfish Mac & Cheese" something else entirely?

                    1. re: Mr Taster

                      It's not Crawfish Monica, which is trademarked, it's mac and cheese with a puree' of tails and the essence of shells (*like when you make bisque) pumped into a Mornay sauce of sorts. :)

              1. re: AAQjr

                I was able to sample quite a bit of the menu as 3 of us shared: Crawfish Mac n' Cheese, Fried Shrimp Po'Boy, Hot Sausage Patty and Swiss Cheese Po'Boy, Irish Channel Roast Beef & Cochon de Lait Parish Fair Sandwiches and fries. There were no misses in the bunch. I wasn't expecting such a large menu on the first day. The place itself is very nice, everyone is extremely friendly and helpful and Chef Marcus' enthusiasm is at least as contagious in person. I whish them the best of luck and am so very glad that it's so convenient for me for lunch.

                1. That crawfish monica at the fairgrounds with spiral pasta is one of the most popular things there. Never liked it tho. Po boy looks shrimpy! Good recon jab. Thx.

                  1. JABs how did it taste.

                    more importantly the fried shrimp po boy of course.

                      what about the shrimp po boy ???????

                      1. re: kevin

                        Really good. I had half of a Fried Shrimp Po'Boy and shared the other half. Freshly made with care.

                        1. re: JAB

                          ok, i'll have to hit it up.

                          hopefully it's open this weekend too, there's no way i can make today in traffic for a late lunch, sadly.
