Transplanted to East Bay from New Orleans: homesick for Nawlins cuisine, help?!?!

SumoSized | Jun 4, 200503:12 AM     11

Moved to the Bay area a couple of years ago. Kinda homesick, but mostly missing the food I grew up with: fresh oysters(half-shell, quarter shooters, Rockefeller, soup), fish, shrimp, bluefin tuna--frozen seafood is wrong, somehow. And of course true southern comfort foods like fried chicken, creamy buttered grits, greens, gumbo, ettouffe, cornbread, turtle soup, bread pudding with rum sauce, poboys, etc... Any and/or all suggestions are totally appreciated!!!
