THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Andrew Jaeger's House of Seafood Restaurant Review

: The Condor is best known as Carol Doda's House of Stripping, but New Orleans chef Andrew Jaeger has brought his seafood and jazz to the space and we must say it cleans up nicely. New Orleans imagery is cleverly projected onto sheer white curtains that drop from the ceiling into the middle of the room while alternating blonde and dark planks form the elegant hardwood floor. This is Jaeger's second restaurant---the original is still thriving in the French Quarter---and the menu reflects the food cooked by his family since 1887. Most of the dishes are traditional but add Jaeger's own touches, like his jambalaya, which is more red than brown because he adds more tomatoes as did his Sicilian mother. Hand-blended Cajun spices bring a sweet heat to the aromatic etouffée, farm-fresh vegetables smothered in a brown buttery roux with chicken or crawfish atop fluffy white rice. Jaeger's signature version of oysters Rockefeller is a sort of mini po' boy featuring crisp-fried Hog Island oysters and spinach sautéed in garlic on crunchy crostini topped with warm blue cheese sauce and smoky bits of bacon.
