re: Peche - A couple questions


What I mean is they probably receive a fish delivery each day and say, "Wow, this ______ is fantastic, let's use it as a crudo, now what can we do with it." Rather than having say a set menu of 5 different types of crudos that are available each day.

I pretty sure that's exactly what they do. Wouldn't you prefer to have the best of the freshest stuff available as opposed to a set menu that might not be as fresh?

Yes. That is my point and hence why the crudo selections are probably limited. Their oysters are lights out. Really like those Apalachicola ones

Gotcha.
I hope Link doens't catch on to how much I like this place. He may start raising the prices. We had that whole meal I listed above, + 3 cocktails all for $100+ tip. That is insane, highest cost item was $14.

re: Peche - A couple questions


you people and your raw fish.


despite the fact that for me a raw bar is a waste of real estate, the place is fricking awesome. I'll probably go again for dinner next week. if I was in town this weekend I'd be going sooner. Link is killing it with this place.

Good thing Peche isn't a gift to you.... It's for people who enjoy fresh fish. I'm sure Popeye's will have that popcorn shrimp for you again soon.

I have no problem with that and is usually my drink of choice there too. During happy hour $5 High Life & Jameson > $6 Hopitoulas. I still prefer fresh raw fish. If I knew y'all were there I would have brought those beers to you.

Y'all take your seafood mavenry to some sushi joint. Don't forget to cover the raw fish in mayo and soy sauce.

No worries we can try and hook up tonight. btw, Jill gave me an ear full last night about my exposed midriff comment.

re: Peche - A couple questions


Glad the reviews on here look good.

Finally getting back to NOLA for a weekend of food and booze. Good thing the weather will be....f'n hot. Guess I'll be drinking a little more inside.

Anyways, the posted menu looks right up my ally and it looks like they are procuring whatever is fresh and going with that. But, is their menu more like Coquette, where it's changing weekly, or is the online menu posted the staples and they have a "fresh" menu as well?

Not like it matters. Just taking a break from spreadsheet #3832 and curious.

The menu shifts seasonally, or will, but the main menu stays pretty consistent. There is also a daily specials sheet with raw, cooked, oysters, whole fish, etc... of the day.

Place should be considered a schedule 1 drug. I have to unfollow them on twitter because seeing the pics and the daily menu is killing me.

Nice. Sounds like you've been more than once.

Is it a sit/drink/keep trying small plates/oysters, or a normal App/Entree/check kind of place?

We have an 8 or 8:30 reservation, but curious as to whether it might be more appropriate to sit in bar area(do they have that?) if we might sit for an extended period and drink/small plate it for a while.

Would love to have a menu like this in BR. Not sure if BR would embrace it though.

You can sit at either the oyster bar or the regular bar and order off menu or sit at a table and order.

Its really similar in coursing to Cochon. Lots of smaller items with a few larger plates.

I've been 5 times already, but its probably because its close to office and makes a nice, light lunch. Granted I've gotten to know Ryan over the last few years so my viewpoint may be biased in full disclosure.

Good deal. Sounds perfect.

Any off the charts small plates you've had recently?

Hoping they have some Apalachicolas in.

His raw tuna dishes are really excellent. Last time it had melon and mint. I like the fried oysters with a spicy slaw. I havent seen apalachicolas last two times, but they have had blue points for 1.40 a pop. The shrimp with chili garlic sauce, ground shrimp with noodles, crawfish gratin are pretty excellent. Smoked mussels.
