What I Ate
Pat O’ Briens – @patobriens
Very cool atmosphere with a nice courtyard for dining. The hurricane is the popular choice here. I’m not a fan of the overly sugary drinks but this one isn’t that bad. Food is decent, gonna need multiple visits to test more options.
Cafe Du Monde – @cafedumonde
Located in the French Market, this is a very touristy attraction. The line is likely to be long and in my opinion not worth the hype. Nothing special about the actual beignets, seems to be more of an experience for the mess you’ll make.
Deanie’s Seafood – @deaniesseafood
This is your place to go if you are looking for a healthy helping of fried goodness. I ordered the HALF Seafood Platter (soft shell crab on top, shrimp, catfish, and crawfish balls).. yes what you see is a half order.
Acme Oyster House – @acmeosyter
Another popular tourist spot. Doesn’t matter what time of day you go, be prepared to stand in line. The popular dish is the chargrilled oyster platter. I’ve never been a fan of oysters but these are very good. Be sure to try them with the variety of tabasco sauces offered.
