Chargrilled oysters!

First place we went when we got here. Best oysters ever tasted. The environment and the people were great. We will be going back again before we leave!

I know it's super touristy, but we got there late and had such fun with the hilarious and friendly waitstaff at the oyster bar. Do not miss the oysters rockefeller and make sure to load them up with hot sauce. Such a fun evening here!

This was on my restaurant bucket list and I am so glad we went. Chargrilled oysters are to die for, I had to make myself stop eating them. The banana's foster cheesecake is unbelievable!!! Will go back if I'm ever in New Orleans again.
