Acme Oyster House Restaurant Review: Acme’s Covington location may lack the cachet of the French Quarter flagship, but it has the same quality oysters and classic renditions of casual New Orleans favorites. Gumbo or red beans served in a bread bowl, known here as the Poopa, is a house specialty. Acme also offers “Cajun sushi,” with raw or fried oysters or fried shrimp topped with wasabi, Tabasco soy sauce and sticky rice to be eaten with chopsticks. If oysters are not for you, the 10 Napkin Roast Beef sandwich is juicy, messy and served on some of the crispiest French bread in town. For dessert get a chocolate brownie sundae or pecan cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream. A fine Abita beer will pair well with the food, although wines are offered. Also located at 724 Iberville St., New Orleans, 504-522-5973; and 3000 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 504-309-4056.
