New Orleans is known for its fresh Louisiana and Gulf seafood, and Bourbon House (144 Bourbon Street) is one of the top places in the city to experience this. The venue has the best oyster shucker in town — their oyster shucker Leo Smith actually holds the official title — and is committed to only serving seafood that’s fresh, local and in season.
What you’re seeing above is their “Fruits de Mer” or fruits of the sea, featuring boiled Gulf shrimp, mussels, marinated crab fingers and seasonal seafood salads. As this is a Dickie Brennan restaurant, you’ll also sample oysters on the half shell prepared his favorite way: Topped with local caviar. It’s New Orleans seafood at its finest.
