In warmer weather, the New York–based Remodelista editors are known frequenters of Grand Banks and Pilot, two schooners docked in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, respectively, that serve up freshly shucked oysters and much-needed river breezes in the summer months. So we were pleased to stumble upon Seaworthy: an all-season, on-land version in New Orleans, helmed by the team behind the New York outfits in collaboration with another of our favorites, the Ace Hotel. (See our Hotels & Lodging post for more on the Ace Hotel in NOLA.)
Housed in a three-story Creole cottage dating back to 1832 next to the Ace, and rehabbed by Brooklyn-based Home Studios and Atelier Ace (the hotel’s in-house team), the oyster bar and restaurant has plenty of old-world charm, with plaster walls, ever so slightly crooked windows, sloping ceilings, and a mantel with Southern Gothic appeal. Take a walk through.
