This is a cajun seafood boil restaurant in the South End, with giant plates of spicy shellfish and a space that kind of looks like the set design warehouse for A Streetcar Named Desire. Around here, we’re reluctant to admit that other cities can do seafood as well as us, but try the snow crab legs with the Bootleg sauce and give New Orleans its due.
