Across from the Acme Oyster House. Good food, friendly service
Favorite Dish This may well be the best place to order a full platter of Oysters Bienville. Cooked oysters on the half-shell and with a special creamy cheese sauce. Great with beer. Down-right addicting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had heard that most people argue over which is better, Felix's or Acme...We tried Acme first. It was packed and the food was good. The next day we tried Felix's. We thought it was strange that it had such a reputation and it was empty, but we were eating lunch a bit early that day (we are from Florida so we were adjusting to the time). None the less, it was awful. Yet another meal that was not eaten in New Orleans, they must have changed management.
The oysters were great. We enjoyed a dozen at the Bourbon House and the Royal House and this was far the best.
Favorite Dish The dozen oysters we had here were superb. The waitress swirled up the oyster sauce out of the ingredients on the table for us and with a little added Crystal, we dug in! There seems to be a lot of other good things on the menu, as well, but we came for the oysters. Come during the week and there won't be much of a line - we walked in. Across the street at ACME, the line is always there - guidebooks describe the restaurant as "Appleby's of NOLA" so why not come across the street!
