My suggestions for eating seafood in the French Quarter

Inexpensive but Good Po-Boys:

The old favorite: Johnny’s Po-Boys
511 St Louis St
http://johnnyspoboys.com/

The new up-and-comer: NOLA Po-boys
908 Bourbon St
http://www.yelp.com/biz/nola-po-boys-new-orleans

Moderately priced:

Acme Oyster House
724 Iberville St
http://www.acmeoyster.com/
(Always a line to get in here!)

Deanie’s Seafood
841 Iberville St

Coop’s Place
1109 Decatur St

A little more expensive:

Both highly recommended! And you might want to make reservations:

GW Fins
808 Bienville St

Muriel’s Jackson Square
801 Chartres St

Very expensive, but it was the best meal I ever had in New Orleans:

K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen
416 Chartres St

And one more restaurant that’s not a seafood place but is so delicious I had to throw it in:

Sylvain
625 Chartres St

Reservations required
The Pan-fried Pork Shoulder is TO DIE FOR.

800,000 people a year are cuffed, cited or jailed for doing something that a majority of Americans believe should be legal.

States spend $3.6 billion per year enforcing laws against simple possession of marijuana.  Legalization would save that and add $400 million per year of increased tax revenue.

Prohibition doesn’t work.
