The Westbank - New Orleans Best Kept Secret: While others eat to live, down in New Orleans we live to eat. If you happen to mention food to one of the locals, you will surely hear about their favorite restaurant. With New Orleans having such a cultural diversity, that restaurant could be almost anything from Italian, Mexican, Japanese, French Creole, etc. While others may enjoy some of the more diverse foods, I particularly prefer good old fashion New Orleans seafood. When it comes to seafood, Salvo’s Seafood on Belle Chasse Highway is on the top of my list providing a semi-casual dining experience with reasonable prices.
Salvo’s specializes in all types of seafood dishes from boiled seafood, fried seafood, po-boys, raw oysters, etc. I started visiting Salvo’s Seafood over twenty years ago when it was located near the rear gate of the Naval Support Activity Base. Due to their popularity with the military and their growing return clientele, Salvo’s was moved to a larger location on Belle Chasse Highway. When visiting, don’t be fooled by its wooden benches and tables. On weekend nights, go there expecting a wait and leaving happy.
