Where Y'Eat: The Seafood Boat Sails On At Old Fashioned New Orleans Eateries

Mar 23, 2017

The seafood boat is not a po-boy, and it’s different from a seafood platter. It belongs to its own niche. It flies brazenly in the face of modern low-carb diets, but survives at a handful of eateries. It can kindle cravings in those with a nostalgic bent, and maybe event those who enjoy a little spectacle with their supper.

It's old fashioned oddity of New Orleans seafood tradition that persists at some neighborhood eateries. Here are a few places to find the boat:
