Galatoire's

504-525-2021  •  $$$
ADDRESS: 209 Bourbon St, New Orleans, LA 70130

CUISINE: Creole, Fine Dining, French, Seafood

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Smoke Free

DETAILS
At Galatoire’s, the grand dame of New Orleans cuisine, the word is tradition. This award-winning restaurant continues to serve outstanding French Creole food under the direction of some of the restaurant's fourth-generation family-members. Presented in opulent dining rooms with beautiful table settings, the food itself is simple and elegant authentic New Orleans fare. Patrons will be happy to know that the restaurant’s previously unwavering policy of "no reservations" (not even for presidents) has been slightly altered. They now allow reservations for the second-floor dining room. To sit in the original main dining room downstairs, though, you’ll have to wait in line like everyone else, but it’s well-worth your while for the shrimp remoulade and poisson meunière amandine. Jackets required for gentlemen starting at 5 pm daily and all day on Friday and Sunday, business casual attire for lunch (no shorts or T-shirts). Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner Tue–Sun. Closed Mon.
"[Galatoire’s] is a mystical place in the hearts of New Orleanians whose families have been coming here since French immigrant Jean Galatoire opened up on Bourbon Street in 1905. Since then, Friday lunch has been as requisite for New Orleanians as Mass on Sunday, and every bit as restorative."
— John Mariani, Esquire, April 11, 2013

"Many Galatoire's regulars start with the grand goute, a combination platter of shrimp remoulade, oysters en brochette and crabmeat maison. Pompano with crabmeat is a fixture, and the flaming cafe brulot makes a dramatic finale."
