We were recommended Mr. Ed's for oysters over the more popular Acme's. I am so glad, the charbroiled oysters were so good, we went back a second time. The crawfish etouffee and the red beans and rice were also fantastic.

We had the alligator bites, raw oysters, shrimp and grits, and a few other entrees. All were delicious and the oysters were the best we’ve had so far. The drinks were average.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
