Friends were visiting from out of town recently and after some discussion, we decided to head to Magazine Street to find a good place to dine. The wildly popular Magazine Street runs parallel to the Mississippi River from Canal Street to Audubon Park. It travels through the Central Business District, the Warehouse District, the Garden District and then ends uptown. Magazine Street is a great place for coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. It is also known for great shopping, looking at charming homes, renovated warehouses and of course people watching.
We found a place to park and then strolled quite a way down Magazine Street before we decided on Mahony’s Po-Boys & Seafood to grab a bite. It was a good decision and we enjoyed our time in the cute house that has been transformed in to a popular restaurant. Mahony’s Po-Boys & Seafood is famous for the Louisiana Po-By Sandwich, but it also offers many Southern comfort foods, salads, fried or grilled seafood, hot plates and much more. We decided on Bloody Marys to drink. They were strong, heavy on the tomato juice and spice and loaded with pickled vegetables and served in Mason Jars. We shared Debris Fries ($11.95), Crawfish Etouffee ($12.95) and fried Green Tomatoes ($6.95). The food is really good. The Debris Fries were decadently delicious, the Etoufee was respectable and we especially liked the Fried Green Tomatoes that had a great breading, were perfectly fried and were cut in quarters and not the usual slices. Mahony’s Po-Boys & Seafood is also famous for their award winning Onion Rings ($5.95), which are sliced very thin and lightly breaded, and described as being light as a cloud and not too greasy. The atmosphere Mahony’s Po-Boys & Seafood is friendly and the help was attentive and efficient.
