Seafood: Suck the head and pinch the tail at this small family-run operation off Colonial. They do brisk take-out business here – and it's no surprise considering the expertly seasoned troughs of seafood they're slinging. You want bayou flavor? This is the place. Order crawfish, clams, crab legs – mild, medium or spicy. And if you opt to enjoy their cozy operation, grab a bib and make use of the paper-towel rolls as you eat your way through a veritable marine biology class full of tasty creatures. Bonus points for giving diners the option of leaving the shrimp heads on, as eye contact makes for such intimate dining. Grab French bread side ($1) to sop up the goodness that lies beneath. For those less inclined to tear through their meals like a raccoon, neater selections abound in the form of seafood platters, po' boys and the like. Save room for beignets!

Local Expert A.D. Thompson Says:

Seafood: "Charming and cozy, iCajun only has about seven or eight four-seat tables, tops. If you're feeding a large group, order in and pick it up."

Best for Seafood Because: Get visceral at iCajun, where steaming foil trays of Louisiana seafood are the order of the day.
