Galatoire’s: A historic tradition of New Orleans dining since 1905
OUR HUMBLE BEGINNINGhttps://www.galatoires.com/about/history
Founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire, this infamous address distinguished itself on Bourbon St. from its humble beginning. 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 the internationally-renowned restaurant. In its fifth generation, it is the Galatoire family and descendants who have carried the tradition of New Orleans’ fine dining restaurants and influenced its evolution.
The restaurant’s culinary customs and reservation statutes have been preserved with little change throughout the decades.
Consistency has been the greatest asset that Galatoire’s has displayed for more than a century. In April 2013, Galatoire’s added a steakhouse to its family of restaurants with the opening of Galatoire’s “33” Bar & Steak next door to the original Galatoire’s on Bourbon St.
Louisiana businessman John Georges is the majority owner of Galatoire’s and Galatoire’s “33” Bar & Steak. The two restaurants are also owned and partly operated by several descendants of the Galatoire family.“One Friday, President Ronald Reagan placed a call to former U.S. Senator J. Bennett Johnston, who happened to be waiting in line for a table at Galatoire’s. After the President’s call ended, Senator Johnston graciously returned to his position in line.”
Family Discussion and Update:
Today at the table it’s jus my hubby and Me . My son’s away at college and doing okay. We are blessed that he’s healthy still since he’s in the dorm. And the COVID -seems to have level out in town. The Town office is back open to the public and we are trying to get the rest of the town open and back to normal. It would be nice if we could plan a Halloween Trick a Trunk for the kids this October. Since last year was cancelled. But with closing of local school it might not be possible.
Today is also National Grandparents Day ! Celebrate this with the ones you love. My son was lucky too spend time with my parents before they passed away last year. It meant so much to him and them.
