Bourbon House Restaurant Review: Bourbon House rambles from sports bar to a private balcony upstairs, offering a different mood in each space. In the main dining area are mirrored columns and lamps that float like blown-glass Christmas ornaments. The particularly good oysters are shucked and served raw and cold at an ornate oyster bar. In fact, Bourbon House boasts only local seafood, and it shows. The plateaux de fruits de mer is worth its pretty price. Seafood gumbos and crawfish bisque are other highlights on a menu packed with Creole standards. The wine selection is extensive and thoughtful, but also appealing are the rare bourbons and bourbon cocktails, which are a specialty here. After-theatre dessert and coffee is a strong contender for attention. Our choice? Bourbon milk punch: ice cream, milk and bourbon. Consider the chunky chocolate bread pudding with bourbon sauce, too.
