Catfish is a New-Orleans-style restaurant/bar in Crown Heights where you can get things like jambalaya, gumbo, and chicken fried steak until 2 a.m. every night. Few things on the menu are especially healthy, and fresh vegetables are scarce, but we suggest you just go with the flow and eat something covered in gravy. Take a few multivitamins when you get home.
