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.

I saw that piece on Sunday too. I've been to NOLA many times and have yet to eat at Antoines. I do remember hearing about the personal waiters but had completely forgotten about it until seeing it Sunday morning. I would like to go there sometime though I have heard that when you go in if you aren't a local they seat you in a "tourist" section and the experience isn't quite the same. I also think they require jackets for men and since we usually travel casual when we are there, I bet it will be hard for us to ever eat there.

In Matawan, we frequented a pub, Maloney's, where the owner and a couple of the bartenders and wait staff knew us. We didn't always get them as our servers but the ones who knew us if they were working would stop by to say hi if they saw us. It was nice.
