Over the last four decades the old, gravel parking lot, littered with handmade, wooden fish-selling kiosks, has done booming business; you better get there early if you want the pick of the day’s catch.

New Orleans locals as well as savvy West Bank denizens know this is the finest source of fresh seafood in Southeast Louisiana.

Ruth Ann and Rob’s Seafood Unlimited is our favorite vendor on the lot, but truth be told we’ve never had an ounce of bad fish from any of the sellers.
