NOLA: This week Ian McNulty digs into crab fingers at Borgne, a smokey oyster po boy at Bevi Seafood, and a miso rice wrap at Superfood Bar: "The miso provides a nutty, lightly pungent flavor to the brown rice, joined by kale, spinach, a kimchi that's tart and strong but not spicy and a nondairy cream made from sunflower seeds, all in a brown rice tortilla with a slight chew.
