Best of New Orleans #2

Galatoire’s has been serving classic Creole, New Orleans style cuisine for many generations
The menu has changed little over the past century-plus.

Every day during the month of August, we’re highlighting one restaurant from our recent ranking of the 31 Best Restaurants in New Orleans. Today’s restaurant, Galatoire's, is #2 on our list.

A Bourbon Street landmark, Galatoire’s has been serving classic Creole, New Orleans style cuisine for many generations. The immense menu has changed little over the past century-plus and is full of things like turtle soup au sherry, oysters en brochette, seafood okra gumbo, a variety of seasonal fish and shellfish, chicken Clemenceau, and black bottom pecan pie for dessert. Anyone can get good cooking here, but go with a regular if you can; that way you'll be guaranteed good service (regulars have their "own" waiters) and maybe a taste of something not on the menu.
