The small oyster bar used to act as the retail market for Seither’s. Converting it was a smart move, and it now doubles up as a dining area and adds a bit of character to the space. This is just an example of the transformations for the easy-to-miss, small restaurant that provides more than meets the eyes.
Initially, Seither’s Restaurant in New Orleans creates a very familiar vibe with laminated menus, perfunctory side salads, the sounds of cracking and slurping all around, entrees-sized appetizers, and people making their way through heaps of boiled shellfish. Other than the blackened edge, the Asian Tuna looks very much like a Louisiana-inspired sushi bar salad with the spun art stripes of eel sauce and spicy mayo. Diners can get first-rate or fried roysters inside a crunch of the Leidenheimer po-boy loaf. They can also get a shrimp dressed with avocado, tuna, and sometimes Italian and seafood stuffing, as well as artichoke chunks matted with mozzarella and doused with garlic butter–a sandwich that easily passes for a handheld casserole.
