With a legacy of over-the-water seafood restaurants dating back to the 1830s, New Orleans’ marina district, West End, is welcoming two near-simultaneous openings of waterside dining on Lake Pontchartrain—Brisbi’s and the Blue Crab. Raised 24 feet above sea level as per new flood zone building requirements, these restaurants seek to reconnect the city with the charm and ambiance of the lake as well as create a destination for cruisers seeking dining options. Docking only 100 yards away, the Bucktown commercial fishing and shrimping fleet is also celebrating the return of water-to- table seafood that West End was nationally recognized for.
