Superior Seafood Review – New Orleans


Superior Seafood is on the St. Charles Streetcar line, a quick ride from the Quarter.  Superior’s  menu incorporates the best of local seafood,  po boys, plates, and fresh catch, with beef, chicken and pasta available for those who partake in those edibles.  It’s moderately priced ($10 – $25), is happy to toss you a loaf of Leidenheimer’s to start with, is open for lunch and dinner seven days, with brunch service Sunday mornings.

My companion is a local, as local as you can get, her family having arrived in 1750, and she had a hankering for a shrimp po-boy and said Superior was the one for her.  I ordered a half with fries, she ordered a whole one and said I’d regret my diminutive order. Which I did. She said she’d share, but she lied.

It’s one delicious sandwich, and they had outstanding coffee as well.

Classic cocktails run $8-$12, and they have a happy hour daily from 4:00 – 6:30, the highlight of which is 50 cent raw oysters, a bargain these days. Wine list is respectable and value-priced.

They do catering, including crawfish boils.

Westport, WA – Brady’s Oysters


Brady's Oysters, Westport, Washington32 degrees out, and we’re determined to have a seafood “picnic”, merely because 1) that’s how we roll, and 2) we’re in a seafood paradise.

We asked our innkeeper for directions to Brady’s, and he supplied minutia detail down to the minute (7 minutes north on this road, turn right…, etc).

Brady’s is not a restaurant, it’s an oyster farming business, with a small market, and an in-house smoker for local salmon and other delicacies.  Aside from the seafood counter, they have a couple of shelves of related grocery items, like cocktail sauce, crackers, seasoning and a few knick-knacks.

Oysters there are damned cheap, compared to restaurant prices, and you can buy them by the pint, gallon, or multi-gallon.  They ship, as well. As you probably know, oysters come in a variety of sizes, and having moved up here from the Gulf Coast, we’re used to a more diminutive mollusk than are generally available here.  The “smalls” in Washington are fairly equal to the largest ones out of Louisiana, and if you want ‘reall small” around these parts, you ask for yearlings.

The even larger ones are a delicacy in Asia these days, and the US ships a lot of them over there.

So we purchased some ‘already shucked’ oysters, cocktail sauce, crackers, and a slab of smoked salmon to enjoy at the picnic tables outside the market.

If you want a strictly oyster vacation, it appears South Bend, WA, is the center of the industry in the area.  Lots of processing plants and oyster-centric restaurants.

We enjoyed Brady’s.  We’d stop again.

Westport, WA – The One Eyed Crab


One Eyed Crab, Westport, WAI opted to hit this spot despite some negative reviews on Yelp and other sites. The reason is that our motel manager not only recommended it, but gave such an enthusiastic rave, I had to see what all the fuss was about.

Spoiler alert: I don’t agree with the negative reviews I read, and was tempted (but didn’t) to waste the time and see if the ‘reviewers’ always leaned towards the negative.

Yes, the place is priced at a premium level, and yes, it is unpretentious as far as ambiance, but YES, the food is great and worth a stop.

We started with the crab-stuffed mushrooms, moved into the massive fresh seafood bowl, and I went with a “tuna burger”, large chunks of albacore, deep-fried, served on a kaiser, dressed.

In my opinion, worth the time and money. Besides, there are California wines by the bottle for as low as $20 and you can take the leftovers away!

Everything was fresh, and freshly prepared. Great waitress, young man cooking who also shows a flair for art (ask to see his sketch pad!).  We recommend.
