Porgy’s Seafood Market Opens Dec. 23

NEW ORLEANS (press release) — Porgy’s Seafood Market will open for business on Dec. 23 at 236 N. Carrollton Avenue.. The Mid-City sustainable seafood market and restaurant was founded by Caitlin Carney and chefs Marcus Jacobs, Dana Honn and Christina do Carmo Honn. The market will emphasize sustainable, wild-caught Gulf seafood, particularly bycatch. It was recently named by Bon Appetit as one of ‘the most anticipated restaurant openings of the season.’

Porgy’s owners aim to connect New Orleans consumers with Louisiana’s many traditional, multi-generational, and independent fisheries. The market offers fresh-cut filets and whole fish from prolific but lesser-known species alongside shrimp, oysters, crabs, and seasonal delicacies like crawfish. Chef Wataru Saeki helms the restaurant kitchen with sandwiches, salads, boiled seafood, and crudo that reflect the market’s ever-changing selection. Guests also have the unique opportunity to choose any item from the seafood counter for the kitchen to prepare for dine-in or takeaway. To accompany, a robust and playful bar program features from-scratch frozen daiquiris and canned beverages. Grab-and-go items and proprietary spice blends round out the offerings, elevating Porgy’s as a one-stop location for thoughtfully sourced meals.
