Tujague's: "Established 1856" New Orleans Restaurant Tip by Virtuous_Tourist

New Orleans Restaurants: 896 reviews and 877 photos


Pronounced "two-jacks", This the second oldest restaurant in New Orleans (Antoine's is the oldest).

While you're guranteed a piece of history and good atmosphere, your mileage may vary on the entrees served.

Favorite Dish: No menu here; what you get are five set courses. First up is a dark chicken and andouille sausage gumbo followed by a tangy shrimp rèmoulade salad. The final appetizer is a moist yet flaky measure of beef brisket with horseradish. A choice of three main courses might be two-inch-thick juicy filet mignon with new potatoes and crisp broccoli or fall-off-the-bone lamb shank with a thick ratatouille-style sauce. Dessert is a dollop of dense bread pudding with a light chocolate sauce.
