Barbeque Shrimp

jericholic | Aug 19, 2009 08:05 AM

I'm a Northerner going to New Orleans for the first time next month so I apologize if my questions sound silly.

When you eat barbeque shrimp, can you eat it with your hands or is that considered bad table manners? Is it okay to eat them with your hands even if you're in a fancy restaurant? Do people eat the shrimp with the shells on or do they take them off first?

I've read on the posts that Mr. B's Bistro serves great barbeque shrimp. Are there any other places you'd recommend for them, in the French Quarter or within wakling distance of the Quarter?
