So, I moved out of New Orleans in 2002 and have only been back once since (the dreaded home Bucs game in 07) and I'll be coming down for the Jets game on Sunday.

I've been forced to survive on...Joe's Crab Shack for the last 7 years. So I'm looking to get some real crawfish/seafood when I come down. Anybody got a favorite place in downtown?

well, crawfish season's long gone (Feb->June), so I dont know where you can find boiled crawfish...

Just about any place is going to have a crawfish dish though, like a pasta with crawfish tails, or crawfish bread...

Redfish grill, Bourbon House, Deanie's, Drago's for grilled oysters, Acme, Felix's (raw oysters only), GW Fins

Now is not really the time for crawfish - any dish you get will be using frozen tails.

Do they farm crawfish there like catfish or are all the crawfish wild?

Yes but it's still to early for that. Around December or January you will get pond raised crawfish. They are smaller in size. The real good big crawfish are the Atchafayla spillway crawfish March to June.
