On the corner of Emancipation Ave and Elgin St, just across the street from Emancipation Park in the Third Ward, Navy Seafood is a one-stop-shop for all things fried seafood that has been around for 25 years. This modest counter-service spot serves everything from fried oysters to an otherworldly fried fish sandwich that crackles with every bite. There are a few tables inside, but Navy Seafood is undeniably a takeout operation—which is fine with us, because a styrofoam container all but overflowing with shrimp fried rice tastes just as good in the car.
