This oyster bar has a Russian owner with good taste in champagne and a Cajun chef who adds southern comfort foods like po’ boys and gumbo to the menu. Who knew it would be such a happy marriage of tastes? That’s just what Muddy Waters is, especially on weeknights when the long bar up front isn’t very crowded and you can get a seat right away or even a booth in the back. Order their sweet Sazerac cocktail and share a platter of oysters or a steaming bowl of seafood gumbo. Muddy Waters is also a great spot to grab a quick drink and order a plate of bar snacks like smoked deviled eggs or hush puppies.
