Tujague’s

Review by: Michael Stern

One block from Jackson Square and just across the street from the French Market, Tujague’s (pronounced “Two Jacks”) has defined Creole food for over a century-and-a-half. Its bill of fare is simplicity itself – a fixed-price, five-course dinner so limited in scope that there is no printed menu. The waiter tells you what there is in the way of entrees, including such choices as crawfish in cream sauce, garlic chicken bonne femme, shrimp etouffee, baked cornish hens, and filet mignon.

Every meal begins with shrimp remoulade, then soup, then a serving of brisket with spicy horseradish sauce. There is Creole salad, hot French bread, your entrée from a selection of three or four, and, of course, bread pudding for dessert (or, if you must, pecan pie). The beverages we recommend are Tujague’s brand beer and after-dinner coffee. Coffee is served in a glass, the way it has been at Tujeague’s since James Buchanan was President, the way we hope it always will be.

Just like café au lait and beignets on the other side of Decatur Street, a plate of beef brisket at Tujague’s is an essential New Orleans dining experience.
