Useful information


If there were ever a restaurant that demands bringing at least one friend along, it’s this one. Lines form nightly for the chance to fill up on a Cajun-style spread, and guests are required to order at least one total pound of seafood that includes the likes of crawfish, whole head-on shrimp, and snow crab legs.Pick from a choice of lemon, garlic, or spicy sauces; stake your claim on a roll of paper towels; and feast upon your selection, which arrives hot in plastic bags. One look around the room and you’ll see that silverware is a second-thought, as most are digging in with their sleeves rolled up and their hands at the ready. Still hungry? Make it a true crab boil and add sausage, corn on the cob, as well as red bliss potatoes to round out the feast. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
