Hermes Bar Review

The allure here is that you'll have your pick of the classic dishes that made Antoine's—founded in 1840—famous, without committing to a full-price meal in its austere dining room. Elegant bar snacks such as oysters Rockefeller, souffléed pommes de terre, and fried eggplant make just as grand a meal, with the added benefit of a front-row view of the Bourbon Street crowd. Expertly mixed old-school cocktails, such as the Sazerac and Ramos gin fizz, are a tradition here. Hermes is connected to Antoines, but there is a separate entrance next door. It's open until midnight on the weekends.

    Good food & value (if choose bar menu)

    Chose this place since it is attached to Antoine's, which has good reviews. If you stick to the bar menu, food is a good value. They also provide a dinner menu and one price fixed selection, all of which are expensive and must be the same as that served in the upscale restaurant. Food was excellent. They charged me extra for bernaise sauce delivered with my souffle fries, both of which were good; however, I was not told of the extra charge to come until I saw it on the bill.
