Uptown Oyster Bars

I'm coming at the end of January (Radiator's 30th Anniversary !!!). Wanna eat all of the FATTEST raw oysters Uptown New Orleans has to offer. Staying across from Pascal's & expect to make an obligatory pilgrimage to Casamento's. Any Oyster Bars Uptown that I shouldn't miss ? Cheers !

  1. Pascal's. Felix's on Magazine (stand at the oyster bar) Cooter Browns but, IMO Felix's FQ and Bozos are better.

      Felix's on Magazine has closed. I hear the ones at Saltwater grill aren't bad and they have some special as well...but cannot vouche for myself.

        There was a Felix's on Prytania until last Saturday. On Sunday, that space re-opened as La Thai, a branch of the Metairie La Thai I think. The menu looks good. All the apps you would expect, between $5 and $9. Entrees about $12-$16. I'll report back as soon as I try it, probably this weekend.

          that's what I meant...prytania, not magazine...I am very anxious to try the thai place.

    2. Had lunch at Casamento's yesterday, and it was absolutely, perfectly, the SAME. A dozen raw, a fried trout sandwich, a shrimp sandwich, a Barq's longneck, a cup of cafe au lait....If I could bottle that feeling & sell it to displaced New Orleanians, I'd be rich. Note: it was rather slow on a Wednesday afternoon (down to just three tables occupied an hour before closing), so if anyone out there has been reticent due to perceived crowds, don't hold back.
