Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar and Fish House, 3117 21st St., Metairie, 833-6310, MrEdsOysterBar.com

Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar & Fish House is open and renovations are complete. The restaurant, which had been the site of Bozo’s since 1979, is the newest addition to Mr. Ed’s Restaurant Group and fulfills a lifelong dream by Ed McIntyre: to own an oyster bar. The new décor and menu is a tribute to the previous owners and clientele, and offers fresh, local raw oysters as well as oysters prepared in the most popular styles. The gumbo, poor boys, salads and hot plates complete a varied menu. A second location at 512 Bienville St. in the French Quarter is set to open in May.
