Come get your Eat On!

Let’s face it: There’s nothing better than boiled crawfish for a perfect spring day in New Orleans.

Served with Deanie’s signature seasoning mix, corn and potatoes, boiled crawfish is definitely the headliner at Pinch A Palooza. Deanie’s Seafood will boil up more than 5,000 lbs. of boiled Louisiana crawfish for Pinch A Palooza Fest-goers to get their fix. And you know it’s going to be good: Deanie’s ranked as “Best Place for Boiled Crawfish” in New Orleans Magazine and “Best Place for Boiled Seafood” in Gambit Weekly and Where Y’at Magazine again this year. (We also earned the nod as one of the top “Best Seafood Restaurants in New Orleans” in all three!)

For those looking for something that requires a little less dexterity, we’ll be serving crawfish étoufée, crawfish nachos (handcut potato chips topped with a crawfish queso sauce, cheddar cheese and jalapenos), crawfish balls, fried crawfish tails, crawfish bisque over rice, and crawfish bread. A food truck serving up traditional items like burgers and chicken sandwiches will be on site for the less adventurous.

To wash down all that spicy crawfish, we’ll have a variety of Abita beers on draft, Miller Lite and Dos Equis, ice cold sodas and water, plus specialty drinks including Frozen Bayou Hurricane with Bayou Rum, Frozen Satsuma Colada and Stoli Lemonade with blueberry or strawberry.

Cool Fruit Sensations will be on site serving refreshing non-alcoholic juice drinks.
