Although it looks a bit sprawling and formulaic from the street, this modern version of a classic New Orleans fish house has much to recommend it. Hang out at the super-fresh raw bar, or order the head-turning fruits du mer platter. A simple grilled redfish is perfect (top it with fresh lump crabmeat for $12 more, a worthy addition). In a city of good BBQ shrimp dishes (shrimp sautéed in a buttery, garlicky spicy sauce—bread-sopping heaven), we love their bourbon-finished version. Leave room for a frozen bourbon milk punch, a dreamy booze-shake. (Naturally they’re committed to, and knowledgeable about, all things bourbon.) Great happy hour with $1 oysters, $5 small plates, $3 Abita Amber, plus a good shucker show.
