Wilkinson "Ken" Sejour, AKA Chef Creole, has been serving delicious seafood for years at several Chef Creole locations. There's a reason Anthony Bourdain visited the place during a taping of No Reservations. The Little Haiti location, like the others, is a hole-in-the-wall takeout spot with only a few stools on site. Generous portions of shrimp, conch, and fish are served steamed, stewed, or fried with helpings of rice, beans, and plantains. This is not a place to worry about your health - opt for the fried stuff and save room the next day for leftovers. Prices range from $9 for fish to $17 for conch. Combinations of two types of seafood are also offered, as are Haitian classics including griot ($7.50) - crispy chunks of pork - and queue boeuf ($9) - braised oxtail. And on Wednesdays, shrimp creole costs only $5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
