Acme Oyster House Restaurant Review: Acme Oyster House’s suburban outpost holds its own with the French Quarter location, offering all of the same tempting favorites. Gumbo or red beans served in a bread bowl, known here as the “Poopa,” is a house specialty. Acme also serves what the menu dubs "Cajun sushi," with raw or fried oysters or fried shrimp topped with wasabi, Tabasco soy sauce and sticky rice as well as chopsticks. For a hearty appetite, try the Peace Maker, a combination of fried oysters and fried shrimp on French bread; it was originally known as La Mediatrice, because nineteenth-century New Orleans husbands took it home to smooth things over with their wives after a night on the town. Finish your meal with a slice of bananas Foster pie or a good old-fashioned root beer float. Locally produced suds, such as Abita, make the best quaffs with this food. Located near a busy shopping district, Acme offers an oasis after a full day of fighting the crowds.
