My favorite seafood place, Bruning's, was washed away by Hurricane Katrina. But, Casamento's on Magazine Street just off of Napolean Avenue, is a great old place, with good raw and fried oysters. The fried soft shell crab at Jacquimo's on Oak Street is worth a visit, though this is not strictly a seafood house. If you have a place that allows you to dine in, call Jefferson

Seafood on Jefferson Hwy. near Causeway Blvd. in Metairie, and find out what time their hot crawfish boil comes out. Go get some (recommend 2 lbs per person, and peel and suck the heads) for a more true local seafood dining experience. Also, Deanie's on Lake Avenue, near Lake Pontchartrain, has large portions of good seafood in their restaurant, and also has a retail take out seafood store, if you want to cook your own, or eat boiled crawfish by the pound. Bon appetit!
