The Fish Counter
If you’re a person who likes to know what type of plankton your oysters ate prior to arriving in front of you, you’re definitely going to have a good time at The Fish Counter. The owners are incredibly passionate about local seafood and you can come in just to talk to them about sustainable fish—though there’s no way you leave without getting some of the best oyster po'boys and fish and chips in the city. It’s a tiny spot with approximately one bench in the whole place, but you can stand at the counter while you eat or get everything to go. On your way out, grab some caesar mix, Canada’s clam juice version of a Blood Mary that tastes 100% better than it sounds.
