Ralph's on the Park

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 Louisiana comfort food with a creative twist. Executive chef Chip Flanagan conceives Ralph’s on the Park’s indulgent, at-times whimsical culinary creations, including small plates and delicacies like the Butter-Poached Alligator Tart and the Rib-Eye Wrapped Scallops, as well as melt-in-your mouth desserts like Mint Chocolate Pot de Creme or the Stuffed Peach Sno-ball.

Ralph’s offers a breathtaking view of City Park, whether through broad windows from a comfortable salon, or while dining en plein air on the restaurant’s broad, beautiful balcony. A relaxed serving style and commitment to high standards of Southern hospitality together make Ralph’s an excellent choice 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.
