Im having a craving for fried oysters. Looking for a place with amazing ones.
I've had the fried oyster po'boy at Hanks Oyster Bar in Alexandria and it was very good. They serve them as an appetizer as well. I was at the Market Lunch in Eastern Market a few days ago and the guy next to me had a fried oyster po'boy and it looked great. Both places give a generous portions.
Just went to Chris Patternote's new restaurant in Federal Hill last Friday. It's got a funky Italian name that i'm finding impossible to remember but their Fried Oysters were stellar. Great batter and accompaniments that just matched perfectly. They do tapas sized portions but the flavor was excellent.
Hank's Oyster Bar has good fried oysters. I think they also have them at Acadiana.
I also had good ones at Central the other night (but they are not your typical fried oyster....still quite good).
I would have to say Mamas on the Half Shell, you can get them as an appetizer, an entree, on a sandwich, on a caesar salad (which is very yummy)!
