French: The shadow that Antoine's casts in New Orleans can't be underestimated. The oldest continuously operating restaurant in America, Antoine's is still run by its founding family. In honor of its anniversary, guests can order a special five-course classic menu that serves up an edible history of French Creole dining, dishes like soufflé potatoes, oyster Rockefeller and seafood gumbo. The decor is spaciously elegant and, even though Antoine's still prints its menu in French, the staff is more than eager to help. Check out Antoine's in the French Quarter (between Bourbon and Royal) during your New Orleans stay. Post dinner you'll be calling the Mississippi the Seine.

Diners can enjoy choices like potato souffle or Poulet Rochambeau, a boneless half-chicken served with a sweet brown rochambeau and tangy bearnaise sauce. Their reasonably priced lunch special is a favorite among locals. Be sure to check out the bread pudding when it comes time to choose dessert.
