Without question, the best time of year to visit New Orleans, as far as the weather is concerned, is the fall or autumn. November is the best time, to be more specific. What’s more, if you really enjoy going out to eat at superb restaurants, combine that joy with an autumn or November trip to the culinary city of all culinary cities in the United States, and all things equal, you couldn’t script a better way to laissez les bon temps roulez ( let the good times roll ). Following is a guide to top New Orleans restaurants with outdoor dining, with special attention given to a couple that, like the weather, just feel a little better to eat at during the fall.
Top New Orleans Restaurant with Outdoor Dining to Visit in the Fall or Autumn – Broussards
Broussards has long been, and always will be, a favorite with New Orleanians and Southern Louisianians. The restaurant was essentially built up from scratch by formally Parisian-culinary trained and local chef Joseph Broussard and his wife Rosalie Borrello in the Borrello family’s mansion. The same residence today on Conti St. in the heart of the Quarter is where you want to go and dine five star, luxury in the traditional style.
On a slightly breezy, cool, evening out on Broussards tropical cobblestone French Quarter courtyard dining area, be sure to order one of the restaurant’s most traditional dishes, Louisiana Bouillabaisse, and cap the evening off with the restaurant’s most storied spirit, a Brandy Napoleon.
Top New Orleans Restaurant with Outdoor Dining to Visit in the Fall or Autumn – Court of Two Sisters
The largest courtyard in the French Quarter is located at the Court of Two Sisters. Yes, the aptness of the restaurant’s name continues in that the property at 613 Rue Royale was once the property of two aristocratic Creole sisters.
Moreover, metaphorically making it the largest courtyard were the most powerful members of not only New Orleans and Louisiana but of the United States, who have lived up and down the 600 block of Rue Royal: a future President of the U.S., several Louisiana Governors, a couple of Justices of the Louisiana State Supreme Court, and a Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
Even further, centered on the very property where the Court of Two Sisters is located is rumored to have been where from the ordinary was transformed into Nouvelle-Orléans, to what it has become today: New Orleans and its French Quarter.
So, when you dine in the Court of Two Sisters, you’re sitting in the middle of history: the history of New Orleans; the history of Louisiana; and the history of the United States.
Enjoy the musical notes of the strolling trio playing traditional New Orleans jazz that light on you as you pass your time in history this fall in the Court of Two Sisters.
