Best of New Orleans #15

It’s really all about the fish at Red Fish Grill.

Every day during the month of August, we’re highlighting one restaurant from our recent ranking of the 31 Best Restaurants in New Orleans. Today’s restaurant, Red Fish Grill, is #15 on our list.

Ralph Brennan’s casual seafood spot has made a name for itself on Bourbon Street not just as a respite from the party outside the front door, but as one of the best places in town to sample the finest Gulf seafood, cooked according to classic Cajun and Creole recipes. You’ll want to start with the seafood sampler, bursting with BBQ blue crab claws, Gulf shrimp and tasso fritters, and Creole marinated Gulf shrimp, then go for the signature wood-grilled redfish, served with tasso and wild mushroom Pontabla potatoes, sautéed Louisiana jumbo lump crabmeat, and lemon butter sauce. But it’s not all about the bells and whistles here; fresh local redfish, pompano, amberjack, catfish, shrimp, and other seafood can be simply grilled with salt and pepper. At Red Fish Grill, it’s really all about the fish.
