Restaurant Overview

Located in a historic New Orleans building that was formerly a City Park coffeehouse and concession stand, Ralph’s on the Park is restaurateur Ralph Brennan’s destination for globally inspired local cuisine. Executive chef Chip Flanagan conceives Ralph’s on the Park’s indulgent, at-times whimsical culinary creations, including small plates and delicacies like the Tuna Two Ways: tartate and pepper seared with avocado, sweet chili and a wasabi creme fraiche, as well as melt-in-your mouth desserts like Bananas Foster Bread Pudding or Meyer Lemon Cheesecake.

Ralph’s offers a breathtaking view of City Park, with a relaxed serving style and commitment to high standards of Southern hospitality, making it an excellent choise for a meal with foodies, friends or family. Flanagan's cuisine is accented by a selection of cocktails and a changing wine list.

Reservations are recommended, but not required. The restaurant is available for private functions, with the option of customized menus for your event.
