Mr. Ed's Oyster Bar and Fish House is also open at 512 Bienville in the Quarter, reports Sarah Baird this week: "The menu features standard fish house fare... The oyster bar itself serves oysters a number of unusual ways, including 'Bienville style' (with shrimp, green onions and mushrooms) or 'Southwest style' (charbroiled and topped with jalapeno)." Now open daily for lunch and dinner.
