Where New Orleans - - CONTENTS -

Eater­ies or­ga­nized al­pha­bet­i­cally and by neigh­bor­hood. Plus cof­fee talk and 20 years of Red Fish.

Two decades ago few restau­ra­teurs would have dared open an up­scale eatery in the 100 block of Bour­bon Street. Ex­cept Ralph Bren­nan, that is, who helped re­vi­tal­ize the once-seedy sec­tion and change pub­lic per­cep­tion with his Red Fish Grill (p. 28). Mark­ing its 20th an­niver­sary this month, Bren­nan’s award-win­ning, seafood-cen­tric restau­rant has since been joined on the block by Bour­bon House, Hard Rock Café and more. Stop in and cel­e­brate with the Grill’s sig­na­ture bar­be­cue oys­ters (try the po’boy ver­sion at lunch), al­li­ga­tor sausage-and-seafood gumbo and trade­mark wood-grilled red­fish topped with lump crab. On Jan. 31 din­ers re­ceive spe­cial com­pli­men­tary birth­day desserts.
