Commander’s Palace

1403 Washington Ave., New Orleans, LA 70130

A local institution for more than a century, Commander’s Palace was first established in the Garden District in 1880. The authentic Creole restaurant, now owned by the Brennan family, is housed in a white and turquoise Victorian building with striped awnings and gingerbread detailing. The main dining room is furnished with chandeliers and painted wooden birds, while the upstairs Garden Room has glass walls overlooking the oak trees on the outdoor patio. Signature dishes include the turtle soup, pecan-crusted gulf fish, and bread pudding soufflé with warm whiskey cream. Also popular are the jazz brunch and the 25-cent lunchtime martinis.
