Perched on the corner of Bienville and Bourbon Street, Arnaud’s offers a fine dining experience that takes visitors back in time. The restaurant opened in 1918 and in the décor has changed very little. The main dining room is splendidly decorated with details from the turn of the last century—crystal chandeliers, beveled glass windows and black-and-white Italian mosaic tile floors. Start your meal with the mushrooms Veronique appetizer and then order either the roast Louisiana quail Elzey or the veal tournedos Chantal. There’s also live jazz in the main dining room nightly and two bars to enjoy a drink while you’re waiting for a table. Ask a waiter to show you the costumes and memorabilia in the Mardi Gras Museum.
