Right in time for lent, Landry’s Seafood House
has opened a location in the French Quarter. The seafood chain, which operated a French Quarter restaurant at 400 N. Peters for 20 years before closing in 2016, is now open at 620 Decatur St.
The restaurant is housed inside the Jackson Brewery Building and has two floors with three bars, which include a ground-level oyster bar, a large second-floor dining area, a "Park View Bar" overlooking Jackson Square, and a "Riverview Bar," overlooking the Mississippi River. There also is a private dining area and balcony for events.
The seafood restaurant is part of Landry’s Inc., a Texas-based chain of restaurant and hotel brands. There is a Landry's on the Lake Pontchartrain waterfront at 800 Lakeshore Drive. At the French Quarter location, executive chef Eric Walker will serve a similar spread of Louisiana Cajun- and Creole-inspired seafood dishes, such as smoked onion butter snapper, blackened catfish Atchafalaya, smoked bacon-crusted scallops, crab-stuffed mahi-mahi, New Orleans-style barbecue shrimp and trout meuniere.
The restaurant will have happy hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and will be open for lunch and dinner daily.
