Jimmy Wedell Seafood PastaIt’s seafood season in Louisiana and this pasta, named after famous 1930’s racing pilot and aircraft designer Jimmy Wedell, uses three Gulf Coast favorites–shrimp, crawfish and crabmeat. We’re thrilled that Messina’s Runway Café, located in the art deco Lakefront Airport, is back open for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Check out their menu and make a reservation now.
