Seafood Platter @ Bourbon House
Most of the menu at Dickie Brennan’s seafood house flies higher than fried seafood, but their West End-style seafood platter is among the better ones around. The oysters, shrimp, and catfish are large, golden brown, hot, fresh, fried to order, and seasoned nicely. Also here are fried crab fingers. A stuffed crab or soft-shell crab can be added for a supplement.
