The Redhead

349 E. 13th Street
New York, NY 10003

It’s that time of year again: The Redhead’s annual crawfish boils. On May 13th, from 1 p.m. till they sell out, $30 will get you 2 pounds of crawfish, sausage, corn, potatoes, garlic & artichokes. Abita Beers will be featured, and the regular menu won’t be served – so get over there and start picking crawdads. If it’s too busy – the deal is even being offered to go.
