Pascal's Manale New Orleans Reviews
Home of the original BBQ Shrimp - Pascal's Manale Restaurant Dec 29, 2008
Although I have been in New Orleans quite a few times, I haven't ever tried the BBQ Shrimp in one of the most traditional restaurants of the city. I have already tried them, but home made. And this time I would compare the home made versus the famous ones from this place.
Ok, now about the location. First of all, I had to say that it got flooded after Katrina, but extensive renovations restored the interior to just as it always was, down to the photos on the walls. Such a relief to return to hearty, traditional N'Awlins fare, in a hearty, traditional N'Awlins setting. And there's nothing wrong with that, as long as you don't expect anything more. Well, the exterior doesn't look very impressive, but the interior sure does. The walls are covered with pics of the celebrities and politicians that visited this place, besides pics of the restaurant among the years. This restaurant is an institution in New Orleans, which opened its doors back in 1913.
This restaurant has built its reputation on famous BBQ shrimp. It's a must trying it here. But be ready to get messy, haha, although they will give you a bib, hehe. This place is always packed, so be sure to make a reservation if you don't want to wait for your table, but if you have to wait, don't worry. They have a good selection of wines and the bar is very nice and cozy. Also while you are waiting you can try the freshly-shucked oysters from the raw bar.
The specialty of the house are the BBQ Shrimps, but they have other dishes, which are also tasty. Menu selections include fine seafood, delicious steak, and Italian specialties. They are even allowed to have their own culinary vocabulary, since they are one of the foundation restaurants of the city. Oh! If it's possible save space for the bread pudding, delicious!
The bar area is loud and always crowded, while the dining room is quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are fun and will help to make your visit unforgettable
