Mister Gregory's is famous for their French Quarter Shrimp Boils. Enjoy this opportunity to experience it as a VIP, with a small group and Mister Gregory himself preparing your meal. This is a 90 minute dinner and show experience. The Shrimp Boil Experience begins with a Muffaletta tasting. Then a local blue crab appetizer, an alligator tail tasting and a presentation about our wild-caught Gulf shrimp on the front gallery over-looking historic Congo Square and Armstrong Park. We prepare the boil in front of you then invite you inside where we present the shrimp, cooked with corn and local sausage, and a selection of seasonal side dishes. Later, we bring out hot towels to clean up and to finish we present a signature dessert from our bakery and a tasting of New Orleans style chicory cafe au lait. Through-out the experience we present a special guest performer from the Burlesque, Drag or Cabaret clubs of the French Quarter to entertain you. Please join us for a lovely dinner party, make some new friends and eat the very best shrimp in the world.
