United States Louisiana New Orleans

Antoine's Restaurant

Tips from the community

Antoine’s has been open since 1840, making it the oldest operating restaurant in the United States. For that reason alone it is a cool landmark to check out, but their old-school menu does not disappoint. Their oyster rockefeller is a must try - they’ve been making them with the same recipe for over a century. This is also the best place in the city to try escargot. As for entrees, the seafood omelet is to die for as are the grillades and grits. Don’t leave the establishment without a bite of bread pudding.

If this is your first time visiting the city, Antoine’s is a must. Antoine’s is the oldest family-run restaurant in the United States and the entire interior is a leap back in time. Some of the recipes that they use haven’t changed in over 200 years, such as their original oyster rockefeller. The restaurant is currently on to their fifth generation of familial ownership and pays homage to the original Antoine in each dish that they create.

    New Orleans has some of the best culinary experiences in the United States, so as expected they have phenomenal brunch options across the city. Whenever I have friends or family visiting I always take them to one of my favorite spots to enjoy a decadent, long breakfast that can last hours if done just right. From jazz buffets to bottomless vodka New Orleans does brunch exceptionally well.
