Any good seafood boils (crab, shrimp) within 30 minutes of downtown New Orleans?

Realize crawfish season is over, but will be in New Orleans next week (July 16-21) and wondering if there are any good seafood shacks close by to get a good, reliable, crab and shrimp boil.

    Suggest you send an email to Tom Fitzmorris. If anyone would know, he would.

    This place is in Slidell, LA. About 30 minutes away.
    Suggest you give them a call.

    The restaurants I'm most familiar with are in neighboring Jefferson Parish, what 's part of what we call Greater New Orleans, or the Metro area. 
     
    Charlie's Seafood - 8311 Jefferson Highway, Harahan, LA (504 ) 737-3700 This is owned by chef Frank Brigtsen who's best known for his uptown restaurant "Brigtsen's" 
     
    The Galley Seafood Restaurant 2535 Metairie Road, Metairie, LA (504)832-0955
     
    Bozo's (oysters on the half-shell, boiled shrimp) 3117 21st St., Metairie, LA (504) 831-6666
     
    This is on 90W, in Marrero, LA opposite direction from the other restaurants mentioned above, but excellent for their boiled crabs:
     
    Sal's 1512 Barataria Blvd, Marrero, LA (504) 341-8112
     
    I think foodbme's recommendation of looking up Tom Fitzmorris' website at nomenu.com is good, he has reviews of several restaurants, listed by cuisine, and neighborhood and also a daily call in radio show Mon-Fri (1350 am) from 3-6 which you can stream from his website.  Imagine, 3 hrs. of recipe swaps, restaurant reviews and recommendations- anything the caller wants to talk about -

    Kaie, how about a trip report?  Did you get to try any of the places mentioned?

    Hello,
    I love crawfishes. What I love more is a restaurant that can cook them well. Boiling crab has great seasoning and consistency. It have need less than 30 minute for boiling.
    So enjoy :)
