One thing New Orleans does better than just about anywhere is oysters. Well, that and parades. But for the former, go to Seaworthy next to the Ace Hotel, where you can try great bivalves from around the country and decently priced cocktails. There’s no wrong time to go here, but they have one of the best late night menus in town, with oysters, burgers, and caviar available until 1am each night. Also, if you’re looking for somewhere to go after dinner or prior to your late night seafood session, check out some live music at 3 Keys at The Ace.
