"Now you don't have to worry about standing in line with a bunch of tourists in front of K-Paul's on Chartres Street and paying $16.95 to taste blackened redfish — the dish that catapulted Paul Prudhomme to national fame."

Gambit's guide to the new food at the 1984 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, where blackened redfish made its debut at $3.50 a portion. There was another culinary newcomer at Jazz Fest that year; as food writer Bonnie Warren wrote, "Who ever thought we'd see the day when we'd be eating alligator at the festival? And I still feel uneasy at the idea."
