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 5 out of 5 by The food was excellent!! Great presentation. Service was friendly and helpful! Jun 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food is very good and interesting. The server was attentive but not intrusive. We have had all of the plates we ordered before and knew what to expect. The only complaint was the "feature drink" of the Happy Hour, a Spiked Arnold Palmer, was possibly the worst cocktail I have had - totally flavorless. We have had great cocktails at Basin - this was not even in the game. Jun 4, 2015
