We visted N.O. last weekend and in addition to visiting a number of the places commonly mentioned here, we also had dinner at the Upperline. It was a special treat. Great service, great food, and a friendly owner and staff. It will definitely be on my list for our next trip.

I know everyone seems to think the Acme is the place for oysters, but I must say the tiny oyster bar at Pascal Manale had better oysters. You pay the bartender and get a colored poker chip whiich you give to the guy behind the oyster bar. If you are up that way, stop in.

  1. Yes, the oyster bar at Pascal's is great, and if you venture into the restaurant, they are the ones (I believe) that invented N.O. BBQ shrimp. It's excellent (although I do love the version at Mr. B's too!). However, the other food there is mediocre at best.

      Brad has hit it on the nose. Pascal's Manale is a SUPERB oyster bar/watering hole. And the dining room is neither objectionable nor notable.
