The po-boys at Zimmer’s are some of the finest in town, but it also has its crawfish game on point, too. And if you want crawfish bread with your crawfish (craw-ception!), you can make that happen, too.
Seafood-loving visitors will love the fact that Somethin’ Else is very handily located right in the heart of the French Quarter. Almost as much as they’ll love the crawfish. There’s also the “Piggy Strips,” an alligator corn dog, and the cochon de lait to keep in mind.
Is it really worth the trek out to Belle Chase (on the West Bank) for boiled seafood? The answer, when it comes to Zydeco’s, is a resounding “yeah you right!” Bring friends, because the long picnic tables make sharing fun and easy. In addition to crawfish, it also offers boiled blue crabs, dungeness crabs, snow crabs, and Gulf shrimp if you really want to go to town.
