New Orleans Historic Restaurants: Arnaud’s

Arnaud'sOn our  guided culinary history tours,  we will take you through the French Quarter and into some of New Orleans’ most celebrated and historic restaurants including Arnaud’s. Did you know that Oysters Bienville was originated here, named for the founder of New Orleans and the street Arnaud’s is located on?

A Little Background

Arnaud’s is unique for several reasons. First, is its sheer size of 19 dining rooms that encompasses almost an entire French Quarter block. Next, Arnaud’s does in fact house a museum on its premises dedicated to the founder’s daughter and restaurateur, Germaine Casanave Wells, and her collection of historic, beautiful Mardi Gras ball gowns. And lastly, Arnaud’s is where Shrimp Arnaud or Remoulade was invented. Remoulade sauce can be found from small cafes, to upscale restaurants to home kitchens in New Orleans.

In 1918, a French wine salesman named Arnaud Cazenave opened the grand New Orleans restaurant that bears his name with a commitment to serving quality Creole cuisine. Sixty years later, in 1978, Arnaud’s was acquired by Archie and Jane Casbarian. Casbarian restored the property and reinvigorated the cuisine.

Today, Arnaud’s Restaurant is being operated by a fourth generation of owners, Katy and Archie Casbarian along with their mother Jane. They remain committed to carrying on the traditions originated by Arnaud Cazenave.

Located steps off of Bourbon Street in the heart of the French Quarter, Arnaud’s offers classic Creole Cuisine and exemplary service in beautifully restored turn of the century dining rooms.
