Casamento (New Orleans) 09

Someone has been pulling the leg of Zagat readers, describing this white tiled, rather sterile looking joint - The wall and

The floor
as a "legendary" Uptown "oyster-rama". They don't serve the famous N.O. po boy - a French roll stuffed with whatever you order but serve whatever between a toasted sandwich. We had the "full" sandwich half with a soft shelled crab and half breaded oysters with a slice of tomato, a leaf of lettuce and a gherkin.
The soft shell crab was very good, a fair size and the five breaded oysters just what you get anywhere along Magazine St.
Price: About the same all over N.O. for oysters. The sandwich set us back $23 plus $1.75 for a bottomless iced tea.
Comments: Somehow they've got a reputation for bad service and good food - I'd have it the other way!
Score: 13/20
