I heard a lot of great things about the restaurant ACME in New Orleans so when I knew I would be going down for ESSENCE Festival, it was at the top of my list of places to try. ACME has an extensive list of great New Orleans and southern fried specialties to try. I visited several times so I had the opportunity to taste the fried oysters, hush puppies, charbroiled oysters, shrimp po boy and more. All were delicious and fresh. All worth trying.
Because it was ESSENCE Festival time there was a line every time I wanted to go dine at ACME. I would say make reservations just in case. Dress is casual and the vibe is fun!
