ACME OYSTER HOUSE, New Orleans

Well, I'm home.
The highlight of my trip? ( other than time away with hubby)
ACME OYSTER HOUSE
As I wrote that... my mouth started watering! 
Seriously. We went there twice. 
There is always a wait and it is always worth it. Not only is the service great, the atmosphere amazing, and the prices right...
It's all about the OYSTERS!!!
You should know that months ending in the letter "r" are the best time to eat oysters.
I am here to tell  you that October is just fine.
We had the char grilled oysters by the dozens. They are char grilled in the shell with butter, a little garlic and  Parmesan cheese. So, SO good. The gumbo was excellent as was the soft shell crab. 
However, all around us and everywhere you looked?
OYSTERS, shucked and eaten raw or chargrilled. My slice of heaven!
