We're not exaggerating when we say, if you haven't been to The Court of Two Sisters, you haven't been to New Orleans. For more than fifty years, locals and visitors alike have brunched, lunched and supped at this charming Creole restaurant on Royal Street, named for the two sisters who once had a notion's shop on the property.
More than a restaurant, The Court of Two Sisters is an attraction, a must-have New Orleans experience. Visitors come to touch the Charm Gates, hoping it will grant them tons of charisma. They come to made a wish at the Devil's Wishing Well, where Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau is thought to have practiced her magic. And, of course, they come to dine on classic New Orleans fare in the breathtaking courtyard with a dancing fountain and a wonderful jazz trio. A meal in that courtyard is a couple of hours in heaven.
One of the things we love most about this iconic, award-winning restaurant is that the buffet set-up gives you a chance to try a little of this and a little of that – all in one place. You can go home saying, "Yes, I've had shrimp étouffée. Yes, I've had jambalaya. Yes, I've had red beans and rice, grillades and grits, Crawfish Louise, bread pudding, bananas foster and king cake. They carve up a beautiful ribeye roast as well, and the salad bar has many tempting options, including cold boiled shrimp that couldn't have been any fresher. And before or along with your meal you can enjoy fun cocktails with names like the Gold Doubloon, Parade Punch, the Mardi Gras Mambo, and (our favorite) the Bourbon Street Flasher.
If you haven't been to The Court of Two Sisters in awhile, do so in 2018, the city's tricentennial year. It would be a great way to celebrate New Orleans' 300th birthday.
