Time for Oysters!

We arrived late evening in New Orleans and we were hungry.  I had read several places that Acme and Felix’s were the place for oysters.  I had also read that Acme usually had a line down the street.  Since it was late Friday night we avoided the long Acme line down to the corner and had a short wait at Felix’s.

We were seated in the room on the far side and quickly given our drinks. I tried a Mississippi Honeybee and I could have sat and sipped those all weekend.  Yummy!

Husband started out with a dozen raw and then added fried gator to make a meal.

The oysters are HUGE!

Daughter went with half a dozen raw and half char-grilled.

I mean while went really crazy and ordered the Roast Beef Po-Boy.  I am not a seafood person by any stretch of the imagination.

First Po-Boy and it was good. Not unlike a hot beef sandwich we have in our state but we do not put on the fixings.

Our families verdict was that Felix’s was awesome.  Daughter loved the char-grilled better than raw oysters and everyone was happy to have seafood on their first night.

Felix’s is located at 739 Iberville Street. They are open Sunday through Thursday 11-10 and Friday/ Saturday 11-11. More information here: http://www.felixs.com/index.html
