Cuisine Type/s: Cajun, French

Description: In New Orleans, where restaurants come and go like a cool day in August, Tujagues has survived eras of war, derpession, and "low-cal" to marke 140 years of outstanding creole cuisine. What has kept patrons and visitors coming back to Tujague's is its food, service, atmosphere, and more atmosphere. When a restaurant has been around as long as Tujague's and has entertained the likes of Cole Porter, O. Henry, Eleanor Roosevelt, Diane Sawyer, Don Johnson, and Dan Akroyd, it must offer more than just good food. Visitors and locals alike want a traditional New Orleans scene complete with ceiling fans, picturesque balconies and a melange of local flavor and at Tujague's they can get their fill. Long before New Orleans bore the name "New Orleans", the bulding at 823 Decatur served as a Spanish armory. Today, Tujague's Restaurant still bears a great resemblance to the Tujague's of old -- The ornately framed mirror brought over from Paris in 1856 by Guillaume Tujague still stands behind the bar. The cypress bar itself is legendary - As New Orleans' oldest standing bar, it survived prohibition with no liquor and three bartenders. Guest books chronicle 140 years of patronage with signatures of such notables as Ty Cobb and John D. Rockefeller. Dining rooms are modest, yet cozy, displaying photographs of famous and infamous patrons, as well as shadowboxes filled with the restaurant's extensive miniature liquor/liquer bottle collection numbering over 5,000.
