Louisiana Seafood Dive
Illustrator Matt Caserta


Acme Oyster House, New Orleans

What to order: Take it from the wisecracking shuckers just inside the door: The fresh Louisiana oysters are equally good raw, fried, or chargrilled, but they all taste even better chased by an ice-cold Abita beer.

The view: The passing French Quarter parade―you’re a half block off Bourbon Street.

What you’ll shell out: $8–$21 for an entrée or sandwich.

Check it out: 724 Iberville Street (French Quarter, original location of a minichain); 504/ 522-5973 or acmeoyster.com
