Concierge.com's insider take:
This informal yet stylish space shows that it's possible to eat on Bourbon Street without giving in to the hard-drinking stigma associated with the city's infamous party strip. An outpost of the Brennan's empire—the family also runs Commander's Palace and eight other restaurants across the city—the Bourbon House's oyster bar might be one of the French Quarter's best, with fresh-shucked bivalves served on the half shell or topped with a salty dollop of "Louisiana caviar" (roe from a local fish). The bar has floor-to-ceiling windows, a solid menu with plenty of informal Louisiana classics (po'boys, gumbo), and a silky frozen "milk punch" spiked with just enough bourbon to blur the line between dessert and cocktail.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
