Acme Oyster House Restaurant Review

: Acme Oyster House’s suburban location in Metairie is bigger, a bit more colorful and every bit as loud and fun as the original. You can’t miss the neon sign that says “Waitress available sometimes.” Black-and-white checkered tablecloths and colorful lighting fixtures combine to create the whimsical atmosphere. Located near a busy shopping district, the place provides an oasis after a full day of fighting the crowds. Gumbo or red beans are served in a bread bowl, known here as the Poopa, a house specialty. Acme also serves one of the most generously portioned fried seafood platters in the city. 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 19th-century New Orleans husbands took it home to smooth things over with their wives after a night on the town. Finish your meal with Max’s Bananas Foster Cheesecake or a good old-fashioned root beer float. Locally produced suds, such as Abita, make the best quaffs with the food. Also located at 724 Iberville St., New Orleans, 504-522-5973; and 1202 N. Hwy. 190, Covington, 985-246-6155.
