Will be in New Orleans in early June and seek boiled crabs in "typical" informal restuarant. As former residents of New Orleans, my wife and I have fond memories of crabs served on beer trays at Brunings by the lake and even earlier eating at Fitzgeralds.
I know these great places are now gone. Please suggest restaurants that come close to providing similar fare and environment. We have a car and can drive to the provinces (i.e. West Bank, Metaire, etc.) if necessary.
