Bozo's

3117 21st Street, Metairie, LA - (504) 831-8666
Posted By Mary Hockman on 5/14/2012 8:09:00 PM
We were very disappointed in this restaurant when we ate there in April 2012. Maybe there has been a change of management. We should have been tipped off by the absence of other patrons except for one table for dinner. We ordered a shrimp dinner and the evening special, crawfish etouffee. Very mediocre. Don't waste your time here.

In much of the South, BBQ shrimp means shrimp sopped with garlicky, buttery juices. There is none better than Bozo's.

Bozo's stuffed artichoke is listed as an appetizer. There is enough stuffing here to serve two or three people.

There is no shortage of good things to eat in Bozo's huge-flavored gumbo.

Bozo's Des Allemands catfish are some of the sweetest-tasting examples of this fresh-water fish.

Almost all seafood comes either fried or broiled (or raw in the case of the oysters).  This is half a loaf containing broiled shrimp, garnished with lettuce and tomato.

Bread arrives toasted and pre-buttered and, like almost all of New Orleans' bread, the crust is crackly and the insides are light-textured.

Bozo's is a neighborhood seafood joint just a few blocks from Lake Pontchartrain in Metairie, just outside of New Orleans.

What's so great about French bread in these parts is how light and fluffy it is. This toasted and buttered loaf precedes a Bozo's meal and is extremely easy to devour with only minor damage to appetite.

'Dressed?' Bozo's waiter asks when you order an oyster loaf. Of course. The lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise are just what big, beautiful briny oysters want to accompany them in the loaf of fine French bread. Pictured here is half a sandwich.

Entirely different from the crab cakes of the Chesapeake Bay, stuffed crab is a kaleidoscope of flavors in which the crabmeat is but a major player.

From the parking lot, the one bit of festive design evident when you look at Bozo's is this stained glass window above the dining room.
