The Bourbon House is an authentic New Orleans seafood restaurant, with its dining room windows looking out onto the riotous Bourbon Street. Inside, the atmosphere is classy and quieter, with the menu including only in-season Gulf of Mexico offerings. There are multiple private rooms, to handle 22 to 40 people and glass wine cabinets partition the dining rooms from a wrought iron balcony that can serve as a pre-function area for group dining. The wait staff is over-the-top attentive and caring, able to guide you through the various oyster options and small batch/single barrel bourbon choices. The menu, a veritable catalog of Creole specialties, includes oysters Bienville, catfish pecan and a killer fried seafood platter. Many ingredients are sourced from local purveyors.
- Group Friendly: "More than 90 American whiskeys are poured at the bar, with frozen bourbon milk punch a specialty."
- Seafood: "The place is classy, but that doesn't mean you can't go to town on a dozen oysters and three fingers of bourbon."
- Restaurants near Mercedes-Benz Superdome: "For the best in local seafood, start with the Plateaux de Fruits de Mer, an iced tower of shucked oysters, Gulf shrimp, seasonal seafood salads and marinated crab fingers."
- Best for Group Friendly Because: The vibe is classy but approachable at this haven of fresh seasonal seafood located on Bourbon Street.
- Best for Seafood Because: The Bourbon House is ideally located for the business traveler based on Canal Street.
- Best for Restaurants near Mercedes-Benz Superdome Because: Dickie Brennan's elegant seafood-centric restaurant is proof-positive that you can get good food on Bourbon Street.
