When you arrive in New Orleans there are so many restaurants to choose from. It's even harder to pick items off the menu since there are so many dishes that are uniquely New Orleans. You're in luck! We've rounded up the top dish you should order from five different classic New Orleans restaurants.
Antoine’s – Oysters Rockefeller
Named for the richness of the dish’s sauce, Oysters Rockefeller’s original recipe remains a closely guarded secret at Antoine’s, where Jules Alciatore, son of the restaurant’s founder, Antoine Alciatore, invented it just before the turn of the 20th century. The oysters are (thought to be) baked with a buttery spinach topping made with a touch of Herbsaint or Pernod bitters.
Tujague’s – Beef Brisket
Tujague’s famous beef brisket is an unassuming dish that seems basic but is cooked to a delicate perfection and served with an unforgettable Creole remoulade sauce. Whether the brisket is featured as a small plate in a four-course dinner or dripped between two pieces of French bread for a decadent po-boy, you’re in for a treat.
Napoleon House – Hot Muffuletta Sandwich
Besides Central Grocery, Napoleon House makes one of the most famous muffulettas in the French Quarter and has been since the early 20th century. Napoleon House makes its muffuletta sandwiches stand out by serving them piping hot from the oven with melted provolone and Swiss dripping over a heaping layer of ham, pastrami, and genoa salami.
Commander's Palace - Bread Pudding
A must have dish for visitors & locals alike, Commander's Palace Bread Pudding Souffle with Whiskey Sauce has your mouth watering at the door. It's the richness of a Creole bread pudding whipped up into a light souffle and finished off tableside with a warm whiskey cream sauce.
