Steamed vs. Grilled Oysters in New Orleans?

Robert | Apr 30, 2002 09:49 AM

I realized that the title of my prior message was not adequate. So please bear with this second version.

After years of saying they would join us on a trip to New Orleans, my brother and his wife are actually going to do it.

His only question was "can he get steamed oysters like he did in Florida?". I have had many wonderful meals of raw oysters and barbqued oysters in New Orleans.

But, steamed Oysters?

Should I just convert him to grilled? If so, what are your recommendations? We will have only one and one-half days, so would prefer to stay close to the Quarters or close to the St. Charles Street trolly line. And, for oysters, he would prefer casual rather than upscale.

I personally perfer the oysters at Uglesich. Any other highly recommended places for oysters? I looked at a couple of menus on line (Acme, etc) but saw only raw, fried, and so on.

Much thanks. I have always enjoyed this site. I often will read it for pleasure even if we are not headed to New Orleans. Looking forward to getting back.
