Boiled Seafood?

Vital Information | Jan 16, 200208:48 AM

The question was raised in the thread below, about whether there is a place for boiled seafood in the quarter.

At first, I could not think of any place, since I never had boiled seafood in the quarter. Then, I remembered the place on Decatur near Tujagues and Central Grocery that always had a big boiling pot by the entrance, almost Parisian style. On the other hand, I never ate there. So my question is twofold: 1) Has anyone ever ate at the place I remember in the Quarter for crawfish, etc. and 2) Where *would* you recommend for "berled" seafood?

More often than not, I ate my boiled seafood at Frankie and Johnies. I also had great stuff at Brunings and even great crabs at Middendorfs.
