The grand dame of New Orleans' old-line restaurants, Galatoire’s has remained committed to culinary excellence for more than a century. Under the guidance of the fourth generation of family ownership, it is her time-honored customs that still bind this renowned restaurant. Above all others, her rich tradition of serving authentic French Creole cuisine at a level that raises consistency to an art form. It is often said that the beauty of Galatoire’s is that things never change. Even after 100 years, ageless New Orleans favorites grace her menu just as they did in 1905.

Vacherie is the home of authentic Cajun food in the heart of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. The restaurant, bar, and cafe are located on the first floor of the Hotel St. Marie, at the corner of Toulouse and Dauphine Streets.

Vacherie restaurant is named for the town of Vacherie, Louisiana — a small community situated on the banks of the Mississippi River, not too far west of New Orleans. Chef Jarred Zeringue grew up there, amid the sprawling farms, grand live oaks, and antebellum plantations that characterize this quiet corner of Louisiana. Vacherie’s landscape and lifestyle are the direct inspirations for the Vacherie restaurant menus.

"In our kitchen, Chef Alex Harrell’s brings a straightforward, no-nonsense approach to cooking and sourcing the best ingredients from the southern United States. This approach carries over to our bar program that leans hard on the classics while leaving room for interpretation (as well as a healthy reverence for American whiskey)."
Zagat quote:
"Hold on for a delightful culinary ride" at this "warm, wood-paneled" French Quarter gastropub delivering "inventive" American eats backed by a "strong bar" pouring "brilliant" cocktails; a "lovely courtyard" and "cordial" service are additional perks, and thanks to "fair prices", "hipster foodies" aren't the only ones who dub it a "sweet escape" from the "busy" neighborhood.
