Romantic Dining: Back and better than ever. Reopened in early 2014 after Creole Cuisine Concepts purchased from retiring owners Gunter and Evelyn Preuss, Broussard's was treated to a $1 million renovation and the results are just gorgeous. The A-team here includes GM Chris Ycaza, whose concept of service was honed at Galatoire's and French-born and trained chef Guy Reinbolt, a veteran of five Michelin-starred restaurants in France and Germany. Chef Reinbolt maintains Arnaud's integrity as a grand restaurant of historic proportions with dishes like smoked duck and mushroom strudel, oysters three ways and Dover sole served tableside. The kitchen's smartly imagined Creole-French cuisine is among the best in town. The classically informed cocktails at the Empire Bar landed Broussard's on Esquire's best bar list.
Creole: Reopened in early 2014 after Creole Cuisine Concepts purchased from retiring owners Gunter and Evelyn Preuss, Broussard's was treated to a $1 million renovation and the results are just gorgeous. The A-team here includes GM Chris Ycaza, whose concept of service was honed at Galatoire's and chef Neal Swidler, who was the head chef at both Emeril's Delmonico and nola pre-Katrina. The reconceived Broussard's is a grand restaurant of historic proportions, with dishes like baked crab gratinee and oyster and mushroom pan roast. The kitchen's smartly imagined modern Creole-French cuisine is among the best in town - and you can now enjoy it at Friday lunch, a proud New Orleans tradition of table hopping and boozy feasting. The classically informed cocktails at the Empire Bar landed Broussard's on Esquire's best bar list.
Group Friendly: An iconic French Quarter restaurant and event space on Conti Street since 1920, Broussard's went through a multi million dollar redo and reopened in late 2013 with new ownership. Now under the family-owned Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts, founded by a group of brothers who got their start with a chain of frozen daiquiri bars, Broussard's is a French Creole restaurant with outstanding cuisine from Executive Chef Neal Swidler, formerly chef de cuisine at Emeril's Delmonico and NOLA. The restaurant's decor features a Parisian-styled promenade as well as a serene courtyard, plus there is piano entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. The Empire Bar serves up great classic cocktails.
