Bourbon House Restaurant Review

: Serving as a culinary gateway to Bourbon Street, cavernous Bourbon House rambles from sports bar to private balcony upstairs, offering a different mood in each space. The main dining area is set with mirrored columns and lamps that float like blown-glass Christmas ornaments. The particularly good oysters, from the local wholesaler P&J Oyster Company, 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 don't be shy about forgoing the vino for rare bourbons and bourbon cocktails, which are a specialty here. This is also a good place for after-theatre dessert and coffee. Our choice? Bourbon milk punch: ice cream, milk and bourbon. But the chunky chocolate bread pudding with bourbon sauce is irresistible.
