A friend sent me an article about places in New Orleans that were serving fish but not in the same old way. Peche has been only opened for four months but really has their act together. Right from the time we entered the restaurant there was a sense of easy going but attentive service.
We decided to sit at the chefs bar and were really glad we did. It was actually a combination oyster bar and pantry(the hot line was opened but not quite as viewable behind that) . There we were entertained( and well fed) by Sam, the master oyster shucker, and Hailey( sp?) pantry chef extraordinaire. We weren't planning to have raw oysters but Sam gave me a sample and I couldn't resist having more. The crab + artichoke fritters were also good.
The star of the meal however was the whole roasted fish. They were out of the redfish but did the the whole grilled sea bass, which was supposed to be covered in sautéed cabbage, in the same style with a simple fresh herby salsa verde at our request. It was large but we picked the bones clean. Yum!
We don't usually have dessert but watching Hailey make the luscious offerings all night we couldn't resist trying one. The peach crisp with cinnamon ice cream was good but I wish I had tried the chocolate, banana and peanut butter pie.
