Emerald City owner Steve Allen's New Orleans heritage is evident in his restaurant's slim, Southern-inspired menu of fresh fish 'n' chips, po' boy sandwiches, and salads. Quell tumultuous palate ponds with comforting cuts of alaskan cod, catfish, halibut, and salmon, coated in a flavorful batter and fried to a golden crisp, served with fries and coleslaw ($5.75–$15). Oysters ($5–$12.50) and prawns ($6–$15) sate maritime appetites, while delectable crab puppies ($5, 6-piece; $9, 12-piece) induce comforting memories of imaginary summers spent living among aboriginal deep-fryers. Bun enthusiasts can indulge in classic po' boys stuffed with a choice of shrimp, catfish, oyster, or chicken, while herbivorous diners dive into crisp salads ($3, small; $5, large) and piping bowls of hearty chowder ($3, small; $5, large).
Where to Sit: Ask for a seat near the open kitchen if you want to pick up tips from Chef Zach Chambers, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.

But you don't have to wait for a special occasion to visit A&O—Oyster Power Hour is Sunday–Thursday. On those days, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and again from 10 p.m. until closing time, the oyster of the day is just $1, and there are drink specials as well.
