Not too long ago Mid City Pizza hopped across the street, reopening in the former Crescent Pie & Sausage Space. Now a new crawfish hot spot has opened in the former Mid City Pizza space (4413 Banks Street) called Clesi's. Translation: Banks Street is still booming, folks.
Self-proclaimed 'renegade guerilla' caterer James Clesi nabbed the spot in January and is now turning out hot and spicy boils daily at 5 p.m., along with fried catfish, jambalaya cheese fries, wings and more for lunch, dinner and late night snacking next to Banks Street Bar (BYOB, y'all).
4413 Banks Street
Phone: (504) 909-0108
Hours: noon to midnight daily; crawfish at 5 p.m.
