  • John Munday, hoping to be the next King of American Seafood.
Saturday is the big day for John Munday: The chef at Samantha’s Tap Room & Wood Grill is headed to the land of crawfish and oysters to compete in the Great American Seafood Cook-Off, set for Saturday in New Orleans.

Munday and nine other competitors will prepare a dish that uses domestic seafood in front of a live audience at the Ernest Morial Convention Center. Six judges will judge the dishes on presentation, creativity, composition, craftsmanship and flavor.

Munday was chosen by Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin to represent Arkansas; if he wins, he’ll be declared King of American Seafood 2016. Maybe he’ll work up variations of his seafood dishes at Samantha’s, like the Crab Trois Frois (crab three ways) or the chicken Andouille and seafood gumbo.
