About
Tujague's Restaurant is the second oldest, continually running restaurant in New Orleans. Established in 1856, this French Quarter institution has been serving traditional New Orleans cuisine to locals and visitors alike for more than 160 years. The restaurant began its long history by serving the hungry port workers from the Mississippi riverfront. Lore states that brunch originated here, as did the Grasshopper cocktail. Homages to the restaurant's long and colorful history abound within the interior of the building from the classic 19th century architecture to memorabilia on the walls. The menu features locally sourced ingredients in traditional preparations, melding French traditions with

The title says it all. The brisket is what they’re known for. Get it and you won’t be disappointed. The service was slow, but brisket was really really good. Had a grasshopper on the house due to slow service.

It was pretty good, they are known for their brisket, it was good, but I thought it was more like pot roast than brisket.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively

No shorts/tanks tops, but other than that, I'd say it's whatever you're in the mood for. Our group was dressed to the nines for a bachelorette, but we were certainly the exception not the rule.

We do a traditional Pimm's Cup with Pimm's No. 1 and have been working on a variation known as the Petite Pimm's as well. Keep an eye out on our bar menu for the variation over the next few weeks!
