Crawfish cuties: The latest tale of creative cuisine fusion comes from D'Amico's Italian Market Cafe [5510 Morningside, (713)526-3400] in the form of crawfish ravioli ($10.95). Six sizable ravioli pillows are plumply stuffed with a piquant blend of ground crawfish, poblano peppers and two kinds of cheese, for good measure: a creamy, soft ricotta and a sharp-edged Romano. The tender housemade pasta is slathered with a sprightly pale-red tomato sauce, lightened with just a touch of cream, studded with chunks of tomatoes and fat crawfish tails, and brightened with bits of green onion. Buon appetito, Boudreaux!
