Fodor's Review

This grande dame of classic Creole restaurants still sparkles. In the main dining room, ornate etched glass reflects light from charming old chandeliers while the late founder, Arnaud Cazenave, gazes from an oil portrait. The adjoining jazz bistro offers the same food in a more casual and live music–filled dining experience. The ambitious menu includes classic dishes as well as more contemporary ones, including vegetarian options. Always reliable are shrimp Arnaud (cold shrimp in a superb rémoulade), oysters Bienville, petit filet Lafitte, and praline crêpes. Jackets are requested in the main dining room. Check out the Mardi Gras museum upstairs.
