I'm sure this question has been asked a hundred times, but if you would indulge me, I would really like to know where a person can get some authentic Cajun cuisine right in the French Quarter, without paying an arm and a leg. I'm packing light, so I won't be bringing any suits or ties with me. What can you recommend that is within easy walking distance?
My main interest is in chowing down some on gumbo, jambalaya, and etouffee. And is there any place that has quality boiled shrimp or crabs?
