Whether you’re looking for a vegetarian option or a meat-and-seafood filled menu during Gonerfest, look no further than DeJaVu, which is located at 936 Florida Street (just south of Crump Blvd). What you’ll get: the best po boys, gumbo, etoufee and Creole-style vegetable sides found north of Manchac, Louisiana.
The little restaurant’s fan base is diverse and growing. On a weekday, people dressed for work Downtown occupied the tables around us. Local moviemaker Kentucker Audley recently filmed a scene at DeJaVu, and Goner Records owner Eric Friedl was promoting the crawfish étouffée from a corner table on a recent Saturday afternoon.
No alcohol served, and DeJaVu closes early, so call ‘em at 901-942-1400 if you plan to go.
