EAT: G.W. Fins

EAT: G.W. Fins

If you’re searching for New Orleans’ freshest seafood with a fine dining ambiance, look no further than G.W. Fin’s. With sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows, exceptional service and a selection of freshly-caught fish and sea life—chef Tenney Flynn is an avid fisherman and hunter—that stretch the depths of the ocean’s bounty, this is a pescatarian’s dream come true. The “Scalibut” is a well-loved house original, combining Alaskan Halibut, sea scallops, Maine lobster risotto and pea shoot butter into an over-the-top main course. However, it’s in the best interest of diners to go with whatever is freshest, like a wood-grilled, spear-caught (by Flynn) Cobia with mirliton slaw, blue crab fritters, pepper jelly and chile oil.

Know Before You Go: The dining room doesn’t technically require a jacket, but men should probably wear one and women should stay away from anything remotely resembling flip-flops.
