Default Etouffee in NOLA

Between this sub and Dockside, just about every restaurant and every type of food in NOLA has been covered and we have those plans laid out. But I'm targeting one specific dish - crawfish etouffee. And it hasn't been mentioned much in any of the threads. Where should we go for the best?

Heard it was good from Jaquees-Imo's and Mr. Ed's - haven't tried either. Too many other good foods to worry about ordering etouffee

it is, sell it on the streets when bugs are in season. There are 1000s of good places to get it in the big easy, any well known place will be good

Mandinas. I'd also suggest joining the FB group "Where NOLA Eats." You can search for previous threads on that topic as well.

Bon Ton Cafe on Magazine St just off of Poydras. If you take a cab or Uber, specify Bon Ton Cafe downtown, not Bon Temps bar, which is on Magazine St. way uptown.

57 years in the area and Mandinas is my favorite. Classic NOLA hole in the wall neighborhood restaurant with GREAT food. Locals eat there.
Musts:
Turtle soup, artichoke and oyster soup, anything else.

this x 2, old NOLA restaurant, not much to look at, wait staff is on the senior age, but man can they cook some good true Cajun grub. Catfish bites with remalude sauce to start with, cup of gumbo and then grub on etouffe. Keep Uber app open because walking may be uncomfortable upon finishing.

Unfortunately Mandinas only has the etouffee on Saturday and we'll be gone by then. Bon Ton is very close to our hotel, so I think we'll grab lunch there.

I'm intrigued by the turtle soup. Never had that before and I'm interested in trying it.

Mandinas is the only place my family will eat turtle soup. While growing up, there was a very old, sweet black woman who our family adopted as an additional grandmother. She took care of us and we took care of her. She cooked the best turtle soup. She put pieces of boiled turtle eggs in her soup. She swore that if you eat turtle soup anywhere in the world and there is no eggs in your bowl, than the meat in the soup was not turtle.

I have no idea if that is true, but the only soup that comes close to tasting like hers is Mandinas.
