It might have just opened in early May, but Heights-area crawfish spot Boil House is already closing until the next crawfish season. A statement on the mudbug joint's Facebook page reads: "Sad times. Sad times. We have decided to close for this crawfish season. Follow us on twitter or Facebook for updates. Thanks for a great spring!"
Some locals were upset at the sudden temporary shutter, considering that plenty of crawfish restaurants stay open year-round or at least change up their offerings to focus on crab or other in-season shellfish. Although Boil House owners and native Louisianans Wayne Gonsoulin and Jason Murray did say that their "crawfish comes straight from the pond to your plate." Still, their other dishes, like the pulled pork po-boys, pasta, boudin empanadas, sausage and desserts like house-made King Cakes and Aunt Sally's pralines also proved to be a draw to some patrons. For now, stick to nearby The Boot for a new Heights-area Cajun place.
