      I'm way stoked that Carmo is back as a vendor - I'm going to eat so much pao de queijo.

          This thread needs an advisory to not look until AFTER you've had lunch! Pavlov's dog has got nothing on me.

            I kept hitting Control F looking for them.....
            This is tragic.

              I've been hitting that every year since they introduced it which I think was that Cuban exchange year. Every time I'm in Pensacola, I get platos of arroz amarillo and ropa vieja at Joe's Caribe. https://www.joescaribe.com/

                      So need a recommendation: Came to the 2019 Crawfish Festival and my wife *feasted* on the AYCE crawfish. Unfortunately not coming until 2nd weekend this time but is there anywhere at Fest that has good crawfish? But also, can any recommend a good place for crawfish in/around the fringes of the French Quarter? (Staying near the Saenger; ideally would like to eat a LOT of crawfish and then just waddle back to our hotel...) TIA!

                        Here's the link to the food info. https://www.nojazzfest.com/food/ There are several crawfish dishes. I love the crawfish enchiladas and this year I'm going to try the crawfish etoufee. and the crawfish cake. I don't mess with boiled crawfish. If I'm going to work for my food, it's going to be crab. But I think the consensus is you don't get many crawfish for your money compared to getting crawfish outside the fest. Too bad you can't make the patry. It's all you can eat crawfish.

                          Aargh, don't remind of this! (Had to give up my patry tickets. )

                          And I totally hear you about putting in the work for crawfish. (Personally, even crablegs aren't enough bang for the buck for moi). But for some reason, my wife loves digging into the shells and working to get that perfect bite (over and over again...) Hopefully someone(s) will have a recommendation for finding endless crawfish!

                            Not right near the FQ but a short Canal St Streetcar ride away are 2 good spots in Mid City, Clesi's and Bevi, both with indoor and outdoor seating. I doubt there is anyplace all that great near The Quarter.

                              Lol - Joe's or Congresso Cubano? Joe's is mack now that they moved to N. 12th away from the base. The mofongos are great there too. But I like Puerto Rican. I did like the ropa at the fest as well, so I will certainly get that.
