From exquisite food to impeccable ambience, dining in New Orleans is an unforgettable experience, but French Quarter courtyards take it to a whole new level. And right now the weather is perfect to sit outside and soak up some sun while you sip your cocktails or enjoy the crisp night air while you dine on divine dishes.
It must be said not all courtyards are created equally, so we’ve picked out our favorites. We’ve listed them for you in no particular order.
One of the best things about Tujague's move to their new location down Decatur Street was the addition of a courtyard. Lush and lovely, there's nowhere we'd rather be when the weather's right.
Crescent City Brewhouse
From tasty homemade brew to mouthwatering handmade hamburgers, Crescent City Brewhouse has cornered the market on best bar food! It’s nestled on Decatur Street with a quaint courtyard complete with a petite fountain, exposed brick, and French doors. This is a dining experience your senses will never forget.
Courtyard Bar and Grill
It’s the perfect place to pop in for a tasty po boy while you’re making your way down the infamous Bourbon Street. Their po boys are amazing, and you’ll be surrounded by all of the sights and sounds so you won’t miss a beat.
The courtyard of this popular restaurant is a great place to celebrate all that is New Orleans.
While reservations aren’t required at any of these gems, you may want to make them anyway. Otherwise you could be in for a wait (although, with a cold cocktail and great company time flies!)
