If you are planning a visit to Austin, you are probably planning on eating a little seafood when you are in town. Texas is well known for its shellfish and one of the best places to go for seafood is Eddie V’s Prime Seafood. Innovative top-shelf cocktails, delicious appetizers, and fresh seafood makes this place one of our favorite restaurants in Austin, TX.
The seafood is the most popular draw, with the raw oysters being at the top of everyone’s list. You have your choice of local oysters from the Gulf of Mexico or the East Coast. The oysters from the Gulf of Mexico have an underlying sweet taste which is enhanced when you dip them in drawn butter. They also have an array of dipping sauces from which to choose. The George Banks Scallops are sautéed in tantalizing citrus fruit, brown butter, and almond sauce. The red snapper comes with a sweet and rich meuniere sauce that is definitely worth the extra calories.
