The location of The Court of Two Sisters dates back almost to the founding of New Orleans. In 1886, the Camors sisters opened what the French would call a "rabais shop" in an ancient building on Royal Street. The Shop of the Two Sisters offered many things of interest to the public, from little notions to the elegance of a ball dress.
Unfortunately, the prosperity the sisters enjoyed during the latter part of the nineteenth century quickly faded in the years of the Great Depression, and the lovely little curio shop was destined for new ownership. The building passed through many hands for the next few decades, serving as a bistro, a refreshment stand and even a speakeasy.
Amid flowering plants and quietly flowing fountains in a courtyard accented by old-world French architecture, The Court of Two Sisters offers a world-famous daily Jazz Brunch Buffet with a delicious display of hot and cold dishes. For sentimental and romantic occasions, The Court of Two Sisters could be considered a destination for families and couples. By night, the courtyard truly comes alive with flickering gas lights and candle-lit tables.
Favorite Dish: Having brunch here is a definite "do". The crawfish etoufee is a favorite of mine. I would finished off the meal with a cup of coffee and creme brulee, a delectable treat that is quite rich.
My daughter likes the selection of breads, and the omlette table during brunch.
THe Grill Room was lovely, and The Court of Two Sisters was a beautiful place to have a romantic dinner for two.
We went to New Orleans in late March. The courtyard, (where the tables are set up), is covered with intertwined wysteria vines as the ceiling. In late March, the vines are in full bloom and to have a late dinner with your love and have the beautiful blooms sprinkle down as you eat was like being inside a snowglobe - time stopped so that we could enjoy the moment.
Favorite Dish: At the Court, we enjoyed sauteed veal topped crab, shrimp, scallops, green peppers with noodles. THe sherried turtle soup for starters was fantastic, and I loved the golden coconut drink before dinner. Too full to attempt dessert, but they all looked incredible.
This restaurant has been in Nawlins for a long time. Nice courtyard where you can enjoy good relaxing meal at fairly reasonble price.
Favorite Dish: Anything Cajun. Oysters are good too
The outside courtyard is absolutely beautiful with white lights everywhere.
Favorite Dish: The Appetizer combination with Crawfish and Shrimp
