The Galatoire’s History

Founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire, this infamous address distinguished itself on Bourbon Street from its humble beginnings. From the small village of Pardies, France, Jean Galatoire brought recipes and traditions inspired by the familial dining style of his homeland to create the menu and ambiance of our internationally renowned restaurant. In our fifth generation, it is the Galatoire family and descendants who have carried the tradition of New Orleans’ fine dining restaurants and influenced its evolution. Our culinary customs and reservation statutes have been preserved with little change throughout the decades. In April 2013, we added a steakhouse to our family of restaurants with the opening of Galatorie’s 33 Bar & Steak next door to the original Galatoire’s on Bourbon Street. The restaurants are now owned and partly operated by several descendants of the Galatoire family.
