Recommend a fairly new Nola restaurant - Crescent Connection
Going out to eat tomorrow night, and am not too familiar with all the new restaurants in the past 3-4 years. Was looking at Peche, but can someone convince me otherwise? Thanks in advance. :cheers:...

re: How long to get from Lafayette to the Dome Sunday AM? - Crescent Connection
I always take 90, and travel to Nola at least a couple times a month. Never had traffic issues on 90. Last year for the Giants game, I left around 7am, and got to the Dome by 9:15 or so. Take 90 to Huey P, Clearview, then Earhardt. And if you're getting on 90 from Ambassador, there may be a total of...

re: Live crawfish in Lafayette on a Sunday morning? - Crescent Connection
Got 2 sacks (1 medium and 1 large) for $102 at Chez Francois. They were nice size, don't recall any dead ones, and most of the tails weren't as hard as shite as you would expect this time of year. Didn't weigh them, but they were probably 35lbs/sack, so about $1.46/lb. I would go back. Thanks for the...

re: Live crawfish in Lafayette on a Sunday morning? - Crescent Connection
I called Hank's yesterday to see what time they opened to pick up Sunday. I didn't have an exact number of pounds and thought I could call today with no problems. Well, I'm shite out of luck. They said they are not taking any more orders for the weekend, and I would have to call Sunday to see if they...

Live crawfish in Lafayette on a Sunday morning? - Crescent Connection
Where can I get live crawfish in Lafayette on a Sunday Morning before noon? I'm relatively new to the area, and I am not familiar with live crawfish places. If I'm only limited to get them on Saturday, any suggestions to where I should buy them? Thanks in advance....

re: Best Place to Grab a Shrimp Poboy Friday night Uptown/Garden District Area? - Crescent Connection
Best time to go to Domilise's is from 4-6pm...little to no wait and you can actually get a table. I like their shrimp po' boy, even with all that "cocktail sauce". I mean, Tracy Porter gave a nod over Parkway during a Food Wars episode circa 2008! Is Guy's still closed? Are they going to reopen. ...

re: What's the F&D board's opinion of Meche's Donuts? - Crescent Connection
Meche's is horrible. I've only been to the Guilbeau and Kaliste Saloom/Ambassador locations. I find them too dry and cakey. Prefer Cajun Market Donut Co. Nothing, and I mean nothing, beats Bakers Dozen on Jeff Hwy in New Orleans. That is how you make a donut. ...

re: Help a Nola transplant in Lafayette to find crawfish - Crescent Connection
Went to Crawfish Hole next to Earl's on Verot. $25 for 5lbs. They were very good...probably the biggest crawfish I've had in recent memory, and the whole 5lbs were consistently huge tails. They do sprinkle seasoning on top, but it wasn't noticeable. My only gripe is that the heads were not juicy eno...

re: Help a Nola transplant in Lafayette to find crawfish - Crescent Connection
Thanks for the responses, guys. Probably will pick up some at Moody Moose to bring home. I do miss the days of going to Perino's or Charlie's after work during Lent season and throwing back 5 lbs and a couple of beers. :cheers:...

Help a Nola transplant in Lafayette to find crawfish - Crescent Connection
Been over here for about 3 years and only been to Crawfish Time and Hook and Boil for crawfish. While they were good, I'm not crazy about the seasoning they sprinkle on top of the shells. Any place in Lafayette that boils similar to the likes of Perino's in Harvey or the old Charlies in Harahan? How...
