Antoine's New Orleans

Dad called to ask me whether we ate at Antoine's on the one time we went to New Orleans (pre-Katrina). We hadn't, but I told him the reason why it was familiar to him is because I have a menu from a place in NO with a similar name - Arnaud's - that I found in an antique shop in Ohio and at the last place I live, I turned scans of it into a wall-long mural. It didn't come down from the wall in good enough shape to transport but I could have it made again sometime. The gallery with the scans of the old menu are here with other vintage menus on my flickr gallery

He asked because there was this piece on CBS Sunday Morning

I wish we would have gone there since they clearly value their people and their customers. Maybe I'll get the chance sometime. For the record, we didn't go to Arnaud's either. I am wondering about the menu and prices for a place ther around the Civil War!

Makes me wonder - any of you have a place like this that you frequent? I do get along well and like to visit my local Ruthie's Bagels regularly. I'm FB friends with the owner even.

It sort of reminds me of Taste, but on a larger scale. The building that houses the restaurant is from the 1800's. Inside it is very polished and modern, but outside still has an old feel for it. The owner has bought the hotel next door and offers a pretty attractive mid-week package. maybe one of these days, we can try it.

Their site is here:

I hope that you will get to one of these places. It sounds fabulous and the food looks great.

That sounds like a lovely staycation! that. With roasted baby artichoke? oooo

If I get back to Ohio anytime soon, I want to go back to here with the parents for lunch
It's the cutest place to wander and shop and their soup is amazing.

We will have to see what happens. I have all of my vacation (and then some) taken next year, so who knows when we will get there for it.

Mmm, I love a good soup. it can make or break a restaurant for me.
