Antoine’s is definitely a NOLA tradition but unfortunately after our most recent trip there this past December, I don’t recommend it as a restaurant. Go, visit, ask if you can walk through the wine hall, even have a drink at the bar. But the food quality has gone downhill and it’s turned into a place where they try to cycle as many people through as they can in a night. Also the famous Oysters Rockefeller were really bad the last time we were there.

Love Antoine’s. Fine dining at it’s best.
Also worthy of checking out is Arnaud’s. Classic Creole food. The oysters Bienville are to die for. The jazz brunch is a great experience. Many different, and unique dining rooms. Upstairs is the Germaine Wells Mardi Gras museum with beautiful Mardi Gras gowns.
The French 75 bar is really cool, too. Put it on your bucket list!

“Antoine? Of New Orleans?”

“Well, I don’t mean Antoine of Flatbush!”

It’s a better museum than restaurant these days sadly.
