Check Out What's New This Summer at Felix's


Felix's in the French Quarter

If you’re from New Orleans, Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar in the French Quarter is probably where you slurped your first oysters. You probably know they serve great fried seafood and New Orleans specialties as well, but what you might not know is that there’s a whole lotta new going on thanks to Corporate Executive Culinary Director Igor Krichmar, including a refreshing Summer Features menu. Chef Igor won the Food Network's Supermarket Stakeout in 2022. We think his new summer menu is a real winner, too.

Appetizers on the new menu include the Royal Red Ceviche with lime and cilantro, served with mango, red onion and jicama. If you don't love this amazing dish, honestly we'd be a little worried about you.

They’re also offering a refreshing Watermelon Gazpacho made with heirloom tomatoes, local watermelon and fresh mint topped with jumbo lump crab meat and smoked extra virgin olive oil. It was so good, y'all!

And because salads are a big draw in the summertime, Felix’s has pulled out all the stops. We sampled the Prosciutto and Melon (yum!).

The Caprese is also fabulous. Every bite was light and lovely.


Entree-wise, the Fresh Maine Lobster Roll on Brioche was a real treat. It may not have come from the Gulf of Mexico, but it couldn't have tasted any fresher or sweeter!  (And their french fries are the best.)

Every bite of the Chilean Sea Bass, served in a soy, ginger and garlic sauce with Coconut Forbidden Rice, was perfection!

And the Steak Sandwich with a blue cheese spread and carmelized onions was heavenly.

Along with their Summer Featured dishes, you can still choose from Felix’s regular menu. Start with a dozen raw or chargrilled oysters or a cup of their gumbo. It's made with a dark, rich roux and they don't skimp on the seafood.  

By the cup or by the bowl, there's nothing better than Felix's Seafood Gumbo.

Then order the Felix Special Po-Boy. It’s half oyster, half shrimp and a whole lotta yum.

Their bread pudding is pretty fab, too. We think it is one of the best in New Orleans!  Don’t skip it!

Felix's New Orleans Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce is absolutely decadent.

Along with a new summer menu, they're making some changes in the bar as well. While you can still get their famous Bloody Mary just the way you like it, they're now offering two different kinds of Hurricanes -- one the way you're used to and another more like the orginal 1930-ish recipe (more lemon). We loved it and encourage you to give it a try.
