Court of Two Sisters - New Orleans, LA (Restaurant Review)

by - 8:00 AM



Walking down Royal Street to get to the restaurant is a treat. Royal is more artsy, with very welcoming gift shops, many art galleries, and vintage stores with all kinds of unique treasures and historical items. A nice break away from the rowdiness of Bourbon Street. 

Court of Two Sisters has won their fair share of awards and accolades in the New Orleans dining and food industry. Ranking as one of the “Best Places for Brunch” and “Best Courtyard Dining.” While we didn’t get to experience brunch, we did dine in their courtyard. It’s romantic, draped in vines. The stuff of movies. Accented with the ambiance of birds chirping and fountain water trickling.

We were excited when we walked in, the interior of the restaurant is very “New Orleans” and historic. The hostess and host staff were less than enthused to be there. Not a good start, but we didn’t let that discourage us. The wait staff, however, made up for it. Very polite and well trained. I wouldn’t say the service was prompt, instead it was very relaxed and unhurried. But still professional. There were long periods in between the stages of service but we had nowhere to be so we were okay with it. For those who are looking to dine and get out sooner than later, definitely plan accordingly or let the staff know. 

The French bread served was crusty, very rustic. 

We ordered 4 entrees total and shared everything. (That’s how I measure which friends are the best travel companions: if they’re willing to share entrees family-style. How else will you  maximize your chance to try everything?! Teamwork like this counts in the Foodie world.)

Entrees were worth the wait. Our favorite out of all of the entrees - the Louisiana Crabmeat Au Gratin. It was savory, it was rich, and it was the perfect marriage of two awesome things. Second favorite, the Crawfish and Shrimp Pasta. With the Boudin Stuffed Pork Chop and Crawfish Napoleon tied for third. 

Bananas Foster, expertly flambeed table-side.
New Orleans has one of the best culinary scenes in America. I can seriously compare it to the likes to NYC, LA, Denver, Chicago. But if you’re a seafood lover, oh man. This city’s take on seafood is unbeatable and unlike any other city. The Creole styles and seasonings, the classic French techniques, the culture and deeply rooted history, IS EVERYTHING.
