BP couldn't stop us from eating! It is time for the 4th Annual New Orleans Seafood Festival and, despite the spill, the lineup is diverse and delicious. It literally fills Lafayette Square and, best of all, is free! Add in the music from Rebirth Brass Band and Kermit Ruffins and you've got a great weekend of food and fun.
The big message this year is that Louisiana seafood is safe and healthy to eat. There are over twenty booths from some of the best local restaurants, including Acme Oyster House, Remoulade, Café Giovanni, Drago's, Galatoire's, Serrano's, Oceana Restaurant, Salt Water Grill, Broussards, Luke, and Mr. B's Bistro. Oh, and did I mention the chefs doing demonstrations throughout the day? Yummy!
