Years ago, I passed through N.O. on a cross-country trip, and got stranded there for a week when my traveling companion got called back home due to family tragedy. I absolutely fell in love with the city, and wandered alone all over town for days, just gawking and listening.
More recently, I cried like a baby when Katrina hit, and watched on TV as such a lovely town was devastated.
Anyway, quick question: before leaving the city, we ate with friends at a restaurant I recall enjoying very much, though I wonder these days if in fact I had lower expectations back in the day. I think it was in the Quarter, and they had lovely aquariums full of tropical fish set into the walls. The food was simple, little ramikens of various seafoods swimming in butter.
What was the name of that place, and is the food there actually any good, or was I just young and naive? My lovely wife and I will be visiting N.O. early next year for an educator's conference, and I wanted to revisit the place if it was recommended. I'm so excited to get back to N.O., and isn't "conference tourism" a wonderful way for Americans to support N.O.?
