This week's dining review features Cajun Steamer, the festive New Orleans-flavored eatery in Cool Springs, which is the third in a nascent Alabama-based chain. Of all the bayou-tinged decor, the best feature at Cajun Steamer is a large plate-glass window with a view of the kitchen, where cooks trawl giant baskets of mudbugs from stainless steel steampots. Tucking into a pile of fiery-red crawdads, I couldn't help wishing I ate more crawfish, and I'll look forward to heading back out to Cajun Steamer, especially for the oysters on the half-shell and the beignets with homemade coffee ice cream.

If you can't make it out to Cool Springs for crawdads, head over to South Street, near Vanderbilt, where every Sunday starting at 2 p.m. there's a crawfish boil with all-you-can-eat mudbugs for $28.95 until they run out.
