From Mardi Gras to football, New Orleans is known for its seasons, and we’ve just entered a fan favorite – crawfish. Served best with a side of cold beer and warm sun, this is a season surrounded by fun. While hosting your own low country boil can be a blast, sometimes it’s nice to relax and let the restaurants do the heavy lifting. (Plus, this city’s superstar chefs can make even seemingly simple dishes delectable.)
The options can seem overwhelming endless, so we’ve put together a list of the best places to dine on these succulent creatures.
The Maison features Crawfish Bites that are to die for! These handmade pieces of heaven are made in house with crawfish and Cajun stuffing then they are breaded and deep fried to perfection before being served with a spicy Maison sauce.
The Pelican Club has a new take on some New Orleans favorites with crawfish étouffee and crawfish chili. Did we mention you’d be dining in one of the top restaurants in the country? Trust us, it’s worth the hype!
Barcadia is doing Sunday Funday right serving up three pounds of crawfish and all the fixins. Check out their local brew selection while you’re there – they have quite the selection!
And Deanie's Seafood has a crawfish po-boy you'll be talking about for years to come. With the Crawfish Quartet, you can taste New Orleans' favorite crustacean four ways. (We love the Crawfish Au Gratin.)
If these dishes sound delicious (and trust us, they are!), you’ll want to hurry, our crawfish loving friends, because this season doesn’t last long! And it could be next year before you get to dive into this delicacy again!
