“Eat Oysters, Get Lucky,” screams the multicolored neon sign over the bar. Oceana Grill is located in a 200-year-old house and serves contemporary Louisiana fare with an emphasis on the bounty of the Gulf, including those oysters you’ll need to “get lucky” — fresh, chargrilled, or Rockefeller. This French Quarter, family-friendly, casual dining venue is the busiest on weekends from 6 till 9 p.m. Don’t miss the mahogany-rouxed seafood gumbo, complete with a crab claw garnish, and roll up your sleeves for the New Orleans-style, peel-and-eat, tail-on Gulf shrimp sautéed in a lemon butter and pepper sauce. The shells on the shrimp make the barbecue sauce especially flavorful.
