I had the luxury of spending a year in New Orleans, and during that time, I discovered so many amazing people, places and things! One place in particular stands out, especially when I think of wonderful, southern cooked seafood! Andrew Jaeger's House Of Seafood is located on Decater Street, in the heart of New Orleans. They have become very famous, for very good reasons, mainly their amazing food, along with their wonderful dining atmosphere. If you've been out visiting the French Quarter, walking around visiting all the wonderful shops, and really need to take a bit to relax to enjoy a delectible meal, you should definitely check out Andrew Jaeger's House of Seafood! Their prices are a bit higher than average restaurants outside of The Quarter, but the quality of their food is much higher. Also, you are guaranteed not to leave hungry! Their portions are huge! And the great part, even if you take some home for later... it is still almost amazing as when they first bring it to you!!!
When I was a resident of New Orleans, this was one of my favorite places to get away for a nice meal. I would definitely recommend you add it to your list of places to visit if you plan to be in New Orleans!
