Best seafood in New Orleans?

Looking for the best seafood in NoLa that is not white tablecloth, and not a po-boy. Please suggest. Thanks!

    1. Do want boiled/fried????

      1. I would suggest the bbq shrimp at Deanie's in Bucktown. My preferences are oysters and frog legs but those bbq shrimp are awesome. I'm not a huge fan of their fried seafood though. They pile the platters high though and it isn't bad, I just prefer my own. Not far from there in Metairie is Bozo's and I like their fried oysters a lot. But I haven't been in a number of years. Casamento's would be my first choice for fried oysters.

          2. Man you gotta be kidding me. This is a very open question. Too many variations of seafood out there to give one answer.
            Dragos for grilled oysters
            Redfish Grill has a good choice
            Casamentos for fried oyesters
            Sal & Judy's for softshell crab
            Middendorf's for fried catfish and stuffed flounder

            This is really not a fair question.
