re: Po-Boy Festival tomorrow. Who's going?(Posted by nikinik on 11/19/12 at 2:12 pm to CT)
We got there around 11:30 and the street wasn't crowded but most of the lines were bad.
Ninja: Soft shell crab po boy. Line was short and the po boy wasn't very good. It was really greasy and overcooked.
Redfish Grill: I was pretty sad that they didn't have the pork belly that they had last year. But they did have a BBQ oyster po boy, which was fantastic and also a pecan crusted trout, which was also delicious. We waited in line about 5 minutes for those.
Had some shrimp cheesecake, but I don't remember who it was from. Some catering company, I think. The flavor was really good, but it was undercooked and not enough for the $6 they charged.
I would've liked to have eaten more, but the lines were just too long.
