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.
