Description: In a city known for its culinary excellence and abundance of fine restaurants, few establishments have achieved worldwide acclaim.
Arnaud's stands as a monument to the enduring allure of classic Creole cuisine, as well as to the excitement of gustatory innovation.
This New Orleans restaurant is a leader of the culinary old guard and serves tradition today with a menu of classics with a thoroughly contemporary accent. Within its beautifully restored, historic walls, one can sample dishes created on the premises -- succulent Oysters Bienville and Arnaud's famous remoulade sauce, to name only two.
Arnaud's lasting success can be attributed in part to the constancy of its owners. It has known only two families since its establishment in 1918, from the colorful founder, "Count" Arnaud Cazenave, to his equally flamboyant daughter Germaine Cazenave Wells, to her heir apparent, proprietor Archie A. Casbarian.
Like the founder and his daughter, Casbarian has infused the restaurant with tradition and flair and shepherded its growth as a magical place to savor the full experience of a meal. When Casbarian acquired Arnaud's he embarked on an extraordinary adventure. "Tonight" wrote Casbarian in his inaugural menu on February 28, 1979, "marks the rebirth of a grand and noble restaurant and heralds a new era in the history of a world-famous establishment."
"Creole food is an exuberant, living cuisine," emphasizes Casbarian. "It continuously evolves as we take advantage of Louisiana's rich bounty of fresh seafood, shellfish, produce and culinary talent."
Casbarian is dedicated to the fundamentals of Arnaud's heritage, keeping one foot in the past and the other a step ahead with a menu that bursts with seasonal flavors and the fun that is the soul of New Orleans.
Arnaud's Restaurant Cookbook contains more than 160 recipes ranging from Pompano en Croute and traditional Seafood Gumbo to many of the dishes for which Arnaud's has always been renowned. Liberally sprinkled throughout are fascinating stories about the restaurant's history and the legends that shaped it.
To read and use Arnaud's Restaurant Cookbook is to participate in a feast for all the senses, nearly as seductive as a meal at Arnaud's itself.
