Rejoice, Eater readers, for crawfish season is upon us again, and while the best spot for boiled crawfish in New Orleans is in someone's backyard, or the Fly, or City Park, or on the Bayou St John, sometimes that just isn't an option. The cravings are too urgent, the friends who berl the best are out of town or whatever. For times like these, sometimes you just have to go to a professional.
Here, now, Eater NOLA presents our picks for great boiled crawfish in and around New Orleans, freshly updated for the 2013 season. Some of these are seafood markets where you'll want to pick up a couple pounds and go to a park or a bar (KJean, Big Fisherman), while others are proper restaurants (Deanie's, Perino's Boiling Pot) and even bars (Markey's, Mid City Yacht Club). But all of them can boil a mean mudbug and satisfy that berled crawfish craving.
