Everything was just OK and felt pretty touristy. The broiled oysters were small and tasteless, wedge salad was good, as were the crepes. The brisket was tough, tasteless, I didnt finish it. I wouldn't go back, but I don't know New Orleans well enough yet...More

Tujague's has been in New Orleans forever - it is one of the oldest restaurants in the French Quarter. Great Pasta and seafood ... has an extensive wine selection as well.

I’m not sure this place faded or just never was very good. But in a city with such a glorious (and well-deserved) culinary reputation, strike this eatery from your list. My shrimp remoulade was very average. Being charitable, my drum entree was mediocre. The menu...More

Not much else I can say about this restaurant other than excellent service and food. You will not find a better place for New Orleans style food. This is a "must be on my foodie list" type of place.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Tujague's Restaurant is the second oldest, continually running restaurant in New Orleans. Established in 1856, this French Quarter institution has been serving traditional New Orleans cuisine to locals and visitors alike for more than 160 years. The restaurant began its long history by serving the hungry port workers from the Mississippi riverfront. Lore states that brunch originated here, as did the Grasshopper cocktail. Homages to the restaurant's long and colorful history abound within the interior of the building from the classic 19th century architecture to memorabilia on the walls. The menu features locally sourced ingredients in traditional preparations, melding French traditions with New Orleans fare and flare. Tujague's famous five course menu is still served nightly; but have no fear, the menu is no longer pre-fixe, so those less ravenous diners can join in too. If you want a quintessential New Orleans experience filled with history and local flare, Tujague's is your place.
