Located right in the middle of the Garden District, Commander’s Palace has been one of the many famous landmarks of New Orleans since 1893. Patrons know the restaurant well for its award-winning cuisine and lively atmosphere, which is a reflection of the community’s history. People come here not only for the Haute Creole cuisine but for the friendly Louisiana charm as well.
With six James Beard Foundation Awards (2012 to 2017) under its belt, Commander’s Palace has indeed received a lot of recognition over the years. This is all thanks to their philosophy that the restaurant is only as good as the last meal they served.
