Love Cajun and Creole food, but you’re kinda have trouble finding it in NYC? Claw Daddy’s in the LES offers a full menu of Louisiana “seafood boils” and all the classic sides to make you feel like you’re in the Big Easy.
To start we ordered up the Seafood Nachos that are topped with seafood chili, cheese, jalapeños and we added some guac. This was both delicious and a new taste sensation.
For our sides we choose Jambalaya with Sausage, their Gumbo with Shrimp, and Spinach for something green. Of note, their food is pretty spicy.
For our main we went with a pound of Shrimp and Corn on the Cob in Claw Daddy’s Louisiana boil House Special (a mix of Cajun, cheese, garlic, butter and more) sauce which is pretty awesome. Use the gloves!
Service wise our experience was less than spectacular. Actually worst I’ve had in a while. Though in all fairness when we did wave someone else over for something they were prompt and I noticed another waitress on top of her game. So I don’t think its fair to knock the entire restaurant for the act of one.
For the the record, regardless I loved the food and I definitely recommend the place and will go back…if they let me back in that is.
Claw Daddy’s NYC is located at 185 Orchard Street
