Cooter Brown's Tavern & Oyster Bar
509 S Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118
1982. That is the year that Vincent D'Aquilia was hired at Cooter Browns Tavern and Oyster Bar. The most common question Vince gets is «How many oysters have you shucked in your life?» We are not sure of course, but he is guessing north of a million and maybe 2.
After 36 years, Vince is hanging up the knife and gloves for some much needed R&R. He promises to pop in from time to time, so this is no good-bye, but come out to celebrate the career of the city's most beloved shucker and enjoy some half priced oysters in his honor (He might even shuck them for you.) Please spread the word!
Vince, we love you and you will be missed. You are a true legend of this industry.
