Come in and celebrate the summer solstice by sipping this Louisiana Rum Runner. Made with Don Q Silver Rum, our own house-made strawberry-honey puree, banana liqueur, orgeat and OJ, this delicious cocktail is summertime in a glass.

In other cities, as Old World cultures broke down, people became Americans. In New Orleans, as Old World cultures broke down, people became New Orleanians. --Joe Logsdon

Our Courtyard is open throughout the day. Escape the rain or eschew the heat in favor of a delicious cocktail or some crêpes. Then stroll the building and take a photo with Antoine...if you dare.

"The nature of New Orleans is to encourage the optimum development of New Orleanians: It's an environment for a specific life-form, a dreamy, lazy, sentimental, musical one, prey to hallucinations (not visions), tolerant, indolent, and gifted at storytelling. This goes against the very grain of American civilization as we know it. We live incongruously in the way of the thrifty, Puritan America whose concerns, including environmental ones, are driven by the logic of economies and planning. We and our ways, are marked for elimination; there is no room in an efficient future for what we embody. This is a city of night, fog and mud, the three elements against which all the might of America is mobilized." Andrei Codrescu, New Orleans Mon Amour, Twenty Years of Writing From The City

“Don't you just love those long rainy afternoons in New Orleans when an hour isn't just an hour - but a little piece of eternity dropped into your hands - and who knows what to do with it?” --― Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire

The Creole Tomato

Each year, the arrival of summer in New Orleans is marked with the first Creole tomatoes served on local tables. No other tomato stirs as much excitement among New Orleans’ locals and chefs as does the Creole tomato. “Creoles” are only grown in a unique area along the Mississippi River in Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes, just south of New Orleans. This special area offers the needed alluvial soil to produce the distinguishable taste. One of the greatest culinary rewards of living in, or visiting, southern Louisiana is the pleasure of enjoying Creole tomatoes at the start of each summer.
