Commander’s Palace

1403 Washington Ave.
New Orleans, LA, 70130, United States
TEL: (504) 899-8221

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.

Insider Tip:

After dining, ask your server if you may look around the restaurant; if you’re lucky, a member of the staff will offer a quick guided tour that includes the kitchen.
