Gris-Gris Seafood, located just one block from the Metairie parade route, serves up creative creole cuisine. A few specialties are crispy fried shrimp heads and surf 'n' turf po' boys that combine fried shrimp with hot roast beef and gravy. Crawfish are a big deal here—they show up in creamy soups, savory cakes, and other dishes—and the cooks have their own special technique for boiling them: they use woks rather than pots, allowing for consistent heat distribution and even cooking. For dessert, try the Metry beignet—a deep-fried honey bun with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and powdered sugar.
