Big Shrimpin'

It's mid-summer, which means you might have had your fill of crawfish boils by now. Turn your attention to another fruit of the sea with this weekend's upscale shrimp boil at The Ace Hotel. On Saturday (7.29), chefs from three top restaurants around town will go head to head to benefit the Audubon G.U.L.F. Institute. 


Held on the patio of Seaworthy, the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine Dan Causgrove will compete against Chef Ysaac Ramirez of Josephine Estelle (also at The Ace) and Chef Ryan Haigler of Grand Isle to create the best boil. The pros will be shelling fresh shrimp from Pistol P’s Seafood (aka Ricky the Shrimp Guy) in a bid to win the top title.


"The Shrimp Boil at Seaworthy is going to be a great party with a crew of chefs who love cooking our local seafood,” said Chef Dan. "An element of friendly competition will definitely spice up the party and the deliciousness for everyone involved.” 


Each attendee can enjoy beer and all-you-can-eat shrimp and fixings on the patio. Of course, no New Orleans event would be complete without a sweet soundtrack. Seaworthy bar manager Lisa Nguyen and DJ Suzy Q will be performing music duties all day. 


Most importantly, all proceeds from the event will benefit the Audubon G.U.L.F. Institute, an organization which has positively impacted the sustainable seafood industry that is so vital to New Orleans cuisine. Said Chef Dan, the Institute’s "work brings practical awareness of sustainability issues to our fishermen and has helped educate myself and other chefs around town about how to support and connect with fishermen who are doing it right."


Tickets to the boil are 30 bucks a pop, and can be purchased here. All proceeds will benefit the Audubon G.U.L.F. Institute. Attendees can make additional donations to the Institute as they wish.
