New Orleans’ Most Classic Restaurants

These have withstood the test of time

Antoine’s

Opened in 1840, Antoine’s holds the title of New Orleans’s oldest restaurant, and the birthplace of the city’s most iconic dishes, Oysters Rockefeller. It’s still lovingly run by the same family, and also unchanged is the exceedingly warm service and delectable French-Creole cuisine.

Brennan’s

Dressed up in pinks and greens, this iconic eatery is renown for its sumptuous breakfasts of egg yolk carpaccio, baked apple, and Caribbean milk punch. But dinner is no slouch, either. You can’t go wrong with any of chef Slade Rushing’s sophisticated spins on classics like Marcona almond topped Redfish Amandine.

Commander’s Palace

Opened in 1880, this grand Victorian mansion attracts locals and visitors alike with its gracious service, elegant Creole cuisine, and a refined, yet approachable vibe. The weekend jazz brunch, in particular, is a legendary affair you shouldn’t miss.
