Seafood: Louisiana's Prime Edible Resource
Surrounded as New Orleans is by some of the world's most productive and best fisheries, the city's cooks and eaters are accustomed to eating first-class fresh seafood. The goodness and variety cannot be overestimated. Both on the finfish and shellfish sides of the menu, the possibilities are endless.
Almost every restaurant in New Orleans serves seafood. From the least expensive to the dearest, from the purveyors of the local taste to the ethnic restaurants, fish and shellfish are everywhere. The restaurants in the list below, however, make seafood their major specialty, with ample selections of fresh local product (and often a good bit of seafood from elsewhere, too.)
Elsewhere on this site are guides to the best seafood from local waters.
