Legendary is a great word to describe Galatoire’s. Founded in 1905 by Frenchman Jean Galatoire, this restaurant has stayed true to its original French recipes and traditions for over 100 years. Food, service, and ambience are all 10/10. Dress code is business casual for lunch, and jackets are required for gentlemen starting at 5 pm every night (minus Sunday, when jackets are required all day).
HNOLA tip: Don’t make a reservation and sit in the main ballroom instead. It’s where all the fun happens.
