Restaurant Overview

Though it’s easy to miss, the Pelican Club is worth taking a trip down Exchange Alley. In 1990, chef/owner Richard Hughes and his wife Jean refurbished a 19th-century French Quarter townhouse, creating a warmly ambient three-room destination for French Creole-inspired food with a magnificent bar and contemporary furnishings. The Pelican Club endures to this day for both locals and visitors as the discerning diner’s French Quarter destination.

On the corner of Bienville Street and Exchange Place, the Pelican Club has served an eclectic mix of traditional New Orleans dishes and imaginative takes on old standbys, such as the 16-ounce “Painted Hills” Ribeye, served with chipotle orange barbeque sauce. Hughes’ cooking has been called “Foodus Terrificus...tempered with restraint,” offering subtle flavors and indulgences to satisfy even the pickiest foodie.

With countless accolades, the Pelican Club’s reputation speaks for itself--but its food speaks louder. For an iconic Pelican Club dish, try the Paneed Gulf Fish with Jumbo Lump Crabmeat, Creole Meuniere Sauce and Jalapeno Hollandaise.
