Oil on panel - 5" x 5"
One of my favorite places to eat in New Orleans is an old established oyster bar and family restaurant on Magazine Street called Casamento’s. It was spared the wrath of Katrina, though apparently Joe Casamento, the son the original owner was not - he died the night of the evacuation. The shuckers lay the "ersters" directly on the old fashioned pale green tiles. Some of them were as big as my hand! (None of them "tourist oysters" for me) Enjoy!
