Nothing like a little bit of boiled seafood to start your Sunday.
I don’t know my way around the boiled seafood places in New Orleans yet, and there’s a whole encyclopedia of restaurants I’ve yet to try. Bevi Seafood Co. is one of the newer kids on the block, and though we didn’t explore the rest of the menu, they offer a whole host of po’ boys and entrees if you want to try something else besides the by-the-pound seafood.This bowl of dark, thick, savory gumbo. Loved the shrimp, not crazy about the oysters, but they were admittedly plump and tender. And a platter of boiled seafood: crawfish, head-on shrimp, and a couple of crabs. It’s a lot of work, all these crustaceans, but the quality of the meat was mostly great. The shrimp weren’t all that memorable, but the crawfish were juicy and sweet, and the crab as well. In particular, the crawfish brains were worth the effort. Side of whole potatoes and really good cole slaw, livened with slivers of banana peppers. Progress. Messy, messy progress.Bevi Seafood Co.
