“New Orleans is a city known for its celebratory spirit, so it was important for
us to capture this signature conviviality and welcoming hospitality for guests
their special moments in our new Patio Room."
  – Ti Adelaide Martin, Co-Proprietor

In the 1970s when the Brennan family took over historic Commander's Palace, they designed the famous Patio Room. Built around two majestic cypress trees, the space is perfect for celebrations. So many of us have made memories here, surrounded by the beauty of New Orleans’ Garden District while enjoying quite possibly the best cuisine the city has to offer.

The new Patio Room, designed by Anurag Nema of Nema Workshop, puts a modern New Orleans twist on the grand cafes of Paris. With its golden-hued mirrors, velvet banquettes, coved ceiling with glowing balloon light fixtures, and grand arch with curved mirrors, it might just be the prettiest dining room in the city. We were glad to hear they stayed true to the signature Commander’s Palace whimsy with a jewel-toned purple carpet covered with birds and butterflies.

At Commander's Palace, Martin said they like to say, "Relax. We have nowhere to go and all day to get there.’”  We beg to differ. We do have somewhere to go – the new patio room at Commander's Palace. To learn more, visit  and reserve the Patio Room, contact Holly Miculek at
