Closes for the bad oyster months, so I wasn't able to come in the summertime. But now it's wintertime and the living is easy.

I started with the gumbo, and was fascinated by how the seafood itself differed from Brennan's.  There, the pieces were plump and tender. Here, they almost dissolved in my mouth.  In neither case were they the gummy mess I had too often encountered (and which made me think, much against my better judgment,  that I didn't like seafood gumbo). The roux was dark and thick with okra. Two thumbs up.

The oyster load was good. Great once I added some hot sauce. I washed it all down with an Abita Amber and was about to leave when I suddenly had to stop off at the raw bar.

Can you blame me?
