Casamento’s; New Orleans

Locals adore this little oyster-centric family-owned restaurant on Magazine Street not just for its lived-in feel and historic cred—it’s been around for more than 90 years—but for its Louisiana oysters, which are served raw, fried, stewed and more. Shuckers pull oysters out of a metal cooler and serve them simply with horseradish, Tabasco and a wedge of lemon. The famous oyster loaf is a tottering pile of fried oysters tucked between thick slices of buttery pan bread.
