Crawfish Boil in Oak Cliff| analog, documentary, food, travel
A couple of months ago I managed to get away for a weekend to go on an epicurean adventure in Dallas with my friend Drew. He had worked at a small Italian restaurant during its opening years and returned to pay a visit to old friends. The crew from Lucia laid out a feast for him, hosted by the sous chef and his beautiful family. I’ve seen few modern day spreads as lavish as this crawfish boil, which made me feel like I was dining on something in a 17th century still life painting – except that I was in a backyard in Oak Cliff eating with my hands. I wouldn’t have traded that day for the world, and I’m glad I took these photos to remember it, even if my camera now has the wrong kinds of grease in its gears.
