Prices are higher than ever, and crawfish will likely be smaller in size all season due to those frigid temps. But for those dying for a fix, here now, are five spots that will have boiled crawfish this weekend, and how much you'll have to shell out to get an early taste. Eater recommends calling ahead to these places, to ensure availability.
