Unique Restaurants in New Orleans

Copeland's of New Orleans
Over 25 years ago, Al Copeland started serving up food with an authentic New Orleans taste. Since then, customers have enjoyed the food so much that Copeland's of New Orleans has opened up several restaurants in seven states. They have small tasting plates so you can try a variety of dishes like Crawfish Etouffee, Crabmeat Ravioli, London Broil, or Steak Labouchere.

Court of Two Sisters
613 Royal St.
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 522-7273
Located just one block off of Bourbon Street, this isn't as far off the beaten path as many of our recommendations, but this restaurant is a New Orleans institution. Now run by two brothers, the two sisters died in 1944, but all subsequent owners have kept their spirit alive through their restaurant. They have an outstanding dinner menu, but they are most famous for their daily Jazz Brunch Buffet which is served from 9am-3pm.

Antoine's Restaurant
This is the oldest restaurant in New Orleans, and you don't survive for 170 years in a food-loving city like New Orleans unless you are doing something very right. This is the restaurant that created Oysters Rockefeller, and their version remains the gold standard. Everything on their menu is a la carte and they do have an $11 minimum. They have 15 dining rooms and can accomodate private parties for up to 700 guests.

Stella!
1032 Chartres St.
New Orleans, LA 70117
This intimate restaurant offers one of the most unique dining experiences in New Orleans. Its Global-Modern cuisine is influenced by world flavors as well as Chef Scott Boswell's Louisiana roots. Their international caviar menu is the best in the city.
