New Orleans Oyster Festival! ~Scott Gold
~No fewer than 24 restaurants are taking part in this year’s fest, offering up a dizzying variety of oyster dishes and other treats, ranging from the requisite fried oyster po-boys to Borgne’s oyster amandine salad, BBQ oysters from Katie’s and Red Fish Grill, Drago’s famous charbroiled oysters, Oceana’s oyster Rockefeller po-boy, Cafe Reconcile’s bacon and tasso-crusted oysters, even an “oyster foie gras” from Elizabeth’s, and plenty more. Freshly shucked raw oysters will be on hand in abundance.
