By far the best culinary experience I had in New Orleans, the Napoleon House is housed in a building that is nearly two-and-a-quarter centuries old. Their menu selection was varied, offering everything from New Orleans’ famous Po’ Boy sandwiches and Muffaletta to Cheese Plates (pictured above) and other light dishes, this was my favorite restaurant in the Paris of the South.
I liked it so much I even tried a sip of their house-recommended drink, the Pimms Cup — a refreshing treat of Pimms (a British gin-like liquor), lemonade, a splash of lemon-lime soda, and a cucumber garnish. In addition to being pretty, this drink was strangely refreshing — and this comes from a girl who doesn’t like the taste of alcohol. That says a lot.
But the best part about the Napoleon House is its character. As I mentioned earlier, this place is oozing character from every pore, and that truly made the experience. If you are in the French Quarter, you definitely need to stop by the Napoleon House, even if it’s just for a snack.
