Seafood Exchange Serves Up Sensational Seafood and New Orleans Cuisine
Since opening in late 2017, Seafood Exchange has quickly became a neighborhood favorite. Located in the Westchase Town Center, Seafood Exchange offers fresh New Orleans flavors unlike anything else in the area. “This is a great community,” Seafood Exchange owner, Tony Bartolo, said. “We’ve been thrilled by all the positive reviews we’ve received from our guests and have enjoyed getting to know our regulars.”
Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere: Seafood Exchange Has It All
“The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent,” said customer Russ S. “We tried the fried clams, the seafood tacos and the bananas foster. Everything was excellent, but the tacos were incredibly delicious.”
Those delicious tacos started as a Blackboard Special at Seafood Exchange, but proved to be so popular that they recently earned the honor of being part of the regular menu. Tony says the new menu was a direct result of comments from guests. “We tailored our new menu to what many guests said they wanted. All of the new items started as blackboard specials and were ones that guests asked for again and again. We want to be creative and open to customer feedback and make changes based on what our customers want.”
One bite of the mouthwatering seafood tacos with seasoned Grouper and Shrimp, fresh roasted corn salsa, pepper jack cheese coleslaw and a cilantro crème sauce and it’ll be your new favorite. Or you might want to try the deliciously crispy Fish & Chips, the flavorful Seared Ahi Tuna Salad or Sandwich, or the perfectly spicy Cajun Deviled Eggs. No matter what you choose, you’re sure to enjoy it at Seafood Exchange.
Seafood Exchange has something for every taste and everybody. As their name would suggest, they have the freshest, tastiest seafood dishes in town, but customers also love their steaks, burgers and pulled pork, and you won’t believe how good the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich is.
“The gumbo was simply amazing,” said Mike P. after his first visit. “Not too spicy but just right. Also had their Buffalo Chicken sandwich. No joke, best chicken sandwich I’ve ever had.”
If you’re looking for a specialty cocktail to go along with your meal, Tony says the Seafood Exchange Hurricane, Gator Bite Punch and Bacardi Mojito are great choices. And when it comes time for dessert, he says the Bananas Fosters is the way to go.
