Show 28, May 11, 2013: Chef Brandon Boudet, Executive chef and co-proprietor of Dominick’s, Little Dom’s and Tom Bergin’s

Brandon Boudet of Dominick’s, Little Dom’s and Tom Bergin’sChef Brandon hails from New Orleans and once a year he brings a taste of the Crescent City to Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles with his Dominick’s Annual Crawfish Boil. It’s the 4th annual this year on their peaceful, open back patio that feels like the backyard of a Garden District mansion.

It’s Saturday, May 18th and Saturday, May 25th from Noon to 4:00 p.m.  For each Saturday it’s 300 lbs. of Louisiana Crawfish in the boil. Chef Brandon readily admits that the secret is the Zatarain’s New Orleans Crawfish Shrimp & Crab Boil seasoning!

You order the mudbugs by the pound. Most neophytes can handle about a pound but a New Orleans trencherman can consume up to 5 pounds!

Other New Orleans specialties will be on the menu including Roast Beef Po’ Boys and Crawfish Boiled Artichokes with Creole Remoulade. He also is preparing New Orleans Sno Balls including a version for adults with Old New Orleans Spiced Rum.

Who needs Bourbon Street? The party is here.
