Lunch at Franky & Johnny's 4.11.2010

So Lynn and I have been joined for the past couple of days by Shotaro Kamio, executive chef of Yoshi's in San Francisco, and his wife Monica. One of Sho's strongest memories of being in the Crescent City some 10+ years ago was a crawfish boil, and so we headed over to Franky & Johnny's for lunch . . .

This is a WONDERFUL neighborhood dive, and honestly, I wouldn't change a thing . . .

The Abita was cold; the fried pepper rings and boudin balls were hot and delicious; and the crawfish was wonderful . . . six pounds and a few beers later and we were all happy campers! What's not to love???
