VINTAGE ANTOINES RESTAURANT, NEW ORLEANS, 1840 - 1940 CENTENNIAL MENU


⭕ Established in 1840, Antoines is the countrys oldest family-run restaurant. New Orleans was the city young Antoine Alciatore adopted to establish a restaurant that would endure under his familys direction for more than 175 years and set the standard that has made New Orleans one of the great dining centers of the world. It was on St. Louis Street, just one block from the spot the famed restaurant occupies today, that the 18-year old Antoine Alciatore started what was to become simply Antoines as a synonym for fine food. He felt at home in the French-speaking city of lordly aristocrats and their extravagances, an ideal audience for his culinary artistry.

After a brief period in the kitchen of the grand St. Charles Hotel, Antoine opened a pension, a boarding house and restaurant.

It was then that he made arrangements for his fiancée to join him from New York. She came to New Orleans with her sister and she and Antoine were married. Together they worked to build up their pension with culinary emphasis.

New Orleans gentility was so taken with the restaurant that it soon outgrew its small quarters and Antoines moved down the block and eventually, in 1868, to the spot on St. Louis Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans where the restaurant stands today.

Antoines son Jules genius was in the kitchen where he invented Oysters Rockefeller in the late 1800s, so named for the richness of the sauce. They remain one of the great culinary creations of all time and that recipe remains a closely-guarded Antoines secret...though it has been imitated countless times.

Countless celebrities have dined in Antoines dining rooms. Lining the walls are photographs of the rich and famous who have feasted amid the splendor...musicians, politicians, military personnel, sports figures, royalty. The list is endless. It includes George Bush, Bill Clinton, Franklin Roosevelt, Pope John Paul II, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, Kate Hudson, Jimmy Buffet, Whoopi Goldberg, Bob Hope, and Bing Crosby to name just a few.

The front cover of the menu has a vintage artists image of an elegant dining room scene and reads: Antoines 1840 Centennial 1940. The menu is featured inside and on the back cover in French. It is in excellent condition. Intact and in highly displayable condition. Bi-fold menu folded at its center with no wear to the edges, no bends, no tears, no rips or stains. 9 x 11-1/2 folded; opened/unfolded it is 11-1/2 x 18.

As noted inside the menu, Bernard R. Guste, Propriétaire, Cinquième Génération, was the fifth generation of the Alciatore family to serve as proprietor of the restaurant (from 1984 to 2004). I have had this menu since a trip to New Orleans in the mid-1980s when some friends and I had lunch at Antoines.

This menu has been in storage in a smoke-free home since that time. A very nice item from one of the most famous restaurants in the World.
