If you've been to New Orleans and walked down Bourbon Street, chances are you have passed Red Fish Grill. We have seen the restaurant multiple times and have never stopped in. Red Fish Grill has received many awards including Top 10 Seafood Restaurant in the United States by USA TODAY in 2013. They were also named a Best Seafood Restaurant in the United States in 2012 by Travel + Leisure Magazine.
Hyatt French Quarter, where we stayed during this trip. We were instantly greeted by a very energetic server by the name of Ike. We learned that serving at Red Fish Grill is his primary job and acting is his second job. Ike has been on multiple episodes of HBO's Treme, HBO's new show True Detective and FX's American Horror Story. If you find yourself at Red Fish Grill, request for Ike - you will not be disappointed.
dinner at Red Fish Grill, I wanted to get something light and healthy. I ordered the Mayhaw Glazed Yellowfin Tuna, over bibb lettuce, blackened avocado, sweet onions, pecans, lemon Dijon vinaigrette. Let me tell you - this was DELICIOUS. This was my first time eating blackened avocado and I am now pretty obsessed. The Tuna was cooked to perfection. It had the perfect amount of lemon dijon vinaigrette and had a nice crunch thanks to the pecans. I would absolutely order this again and again.
dessert, I received the Double Chocolate Bread Pudding with a candle for my birthday - a rich dark and semisweet chocolate bread pudding with white and dark chocolate ganache and chocolate almond bark. This dessert takes 20 minutes to prepare and I strongly suggest ordering it if you are at Red Fish Grill.
If you find yourself in the French Quarter and are looking for a delicious seafood dinner, I strongly suggest a visit to Red Fish Grill. We truly enjoyed everything ordered and it is no wonder why they have won so many awards.
