Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar
4338 Saint Charles Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70115
I’d been dying to check out the new seafood place that opened up on St. Charles Ave. This intersection is super busy and finding parking wasn’t easy. But don’t give up, cuz I promise the food is worth it. When I arrived, the hostess was very gracious and let me hang out in the doorway for the rest of my party to arrive. I saw chargrilled oysters in garlic, herbs, and butter and could not resist. Luckily the rest of my group also love chargrilled oysters and so we ordered a dozen. They’re not huge nor are they tiny, I would say medium size and fresh!
My dinner entree came with this delightful side salad. The dressing wasn’t overwhelming.
One dining companion had the ahi tuna salad. The Ahi tuna blackened topped with a Superior ponzu sauce and set on field greens tossed with cilantro ginger vinaigrette dressing, mangos, avocados, tomatoes and crispy julienned wantons. Delicious and refreshing.
My other dining companion had the shrimp in tasso cream sauce and grits. Tasso is a spicy smoked pork, a Cajun delicacy, added a smokey flavor to this dish. The shrimp was cooked to a nice crisp consistency.
Drum is one of my favorite fishes cuz it doesn’t have a heavy ocean-y seafood-y flavor to it. The drum fish was served with topped with crawfish etoufée, served with whipped potatoes and corn maque choux. I had just had a bad experience with crawfish at another restaurant in New Orleans and so I was super reluctant to order it again (Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder!) but our server was so pleasant and she talked me into it. I’m glad she did, it was delicious.This is a wonderful place for a mid-priced seafood meal!
