Seafood: Polished elegance isn't a bellwether of the restaurants in the Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods in New Orleans. Which is why The Franklin really stands out in the crowd. Intimate and inviting, this restaurant lives in New Orleans but would be at home in any big city. Chef Baruch Rabasa forgoes traditional New Orleans fare for a menu that is both modern and French inspired. Most of the small plates are intriguing, like the grilled baby octopus with harissa and a fetching humachi crudo with avocado. Try fried oysters with a luscious remoulade on the side, or simply raw and gorgeous. There is an interesting (and pricey) wine list as well as a fine array of craft cocktails.
