Astor House in Phoenix to Host "Mega-Authentic N'awlins Crawfish Boil" on Sunday, April 14

Categories: Events

Astor House, the charming little eatery in Central Phoenix, may be the smallest of owner DJ Fernandes' three restaurants (next-door Tuck Shop and Vovomeena on Seventh Avenue and McDowell being the other two), but it's celebrating a big milestone.

At 1 p.m. Sunday, April 14, Astor House will celebrate its one-year anniversary with what Fernandes is calling a "mega-authentic N'awlins crawfish boil."

And the lobster-like freshwater crustaceans won't be the only New Orleans treat at the party.

In addition to the crawfish boil, Fernandes, who spent time in New Orleans to attend architectural school, will be serving up muffuletta, the Sicilian-style sandwich that originated in the French Quarter, and King Cake, the colorful, ring-shaped cake popular during Mardi Gras.

The cost of the all-you-can-eat event is $12 per person (plus three bucks a beer). Simply show up if you're planning on attending. Fernandes says the celebration will last "till the beer and bugs are gone. Like at dark."

Went...or maybe it would be truer to say we tried to go, but when we got there at 2:15, they turned us away saying they were almost out...after an hour and fifteen minutes??? Disappointing afyer we drove all the way from East Mesa. They were serving it, probably 5-6 oz at a time in paper french fry baskets. 

Congrats on a year, but if and when you do this again, you need to realize the average person will eat something on the order of 3-5 lbs of crawfish, there isn't much meat in each of them. Serve them in the 12"x12" styrofoam box you'd normally put a to-go sandwich in and put about a pound at a time in each. There is no such thing as "too spicy", only too bland. Maybe it would be better to let people know ahead of time that you're purchased X number of pounds (500 lbs) of crawfish and are limiting the number of people that can attend  and charge a specific amount per pound rather than advertise "all you can eat".
