Highlights

The idea for Basin began several years ago when Chef and Owner of Baru, Edgar Caro and Thomas Peters, a former fishing guide whose family operates a fishing charter business from Venice, Louisiana, returned from a fishing trip. They caught a snapper and Edgar made it into a dockside ceviche that Thomas maintains was one of the best fish preparations he ever tasted. Along with their friend Antonio Mata, they decided to open Basin, a seafood restaurant serving modernized, lighter versions of traditional Louisiana dishes. Basin sources the best possible ingredients from local sources, highlighting seasonal vegetables and Gulf fish in our daily specials.

Rated 4 out of 5 by The only con to this restaurant is the noise level, which is understandable cause its a Friday night in New Orleans. But overall food was delish, and the pricing was fair. Definately will come back to try the rest of the menu. I always passed by Basin and was curious to try it out, but since I had an incentive from restaurant.com I finally got to eat there and I will recommend this place to friends Nov 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by While the food and service was very good,the kitchen took a long time preparing our meal.At the time we were the only people in the restaurant. So, if you have nowhere to be. ..eat some of the best food we've had on our vacation. Nov 12, 2014
