Once One Of The City’s Longest-Running Brothels, The CellarDoor Restaurant In New Orleans Has A Delicious Menu
Historic restaurants in New Orleans are a dime a dozen. There are so many peppered around this beautiful city, we lose count. There’s one historic restaurant that might just be the most underrated in New Orleans, and it’s worthy of a pit stop. From the cocktails to the cuisine, you’re sure to have a memorable experience at CellarDoor. Let’s check it out.
If you find yourself with a craving for some contemporary Southern cuisine, a visit to CellarDoor is in order.
The rustic little gastropub opened up in 2014 but like many buildings in the area, the building has a much older history.
CellarDoor is located within the historic Swoop-Duggins House in the Upper Central Business District.
The house dates back to the 1830s and has worn many hats over the years. In addition to several restaurants that have come and gone over the years, the building was actually home to one of the longest running brothels in New Orleans.
The three-story building is easily one of the most beautiful in the city.
The rustic and intimate dining room is the perfect atmosphere for meeting up with loved ones and enjoying some delightful cocktails paired with an amazing dinner.
There certainly isn’t a bad seat in the house, but the Chef’s Table will make for one of the most memorable dining experiences you can have in New Orleans.
Located directly behind the kitchen in a home-library-themed space, you’ll experience a one-of-a-kind dinner with a one-off five-course tasting menu alongside cocktail and wine pairings. The Chef’s Table is only available Monday-Thursday, and reservations need to be made at least five days in advance, so plan ahead!
The menu is a carefully crafted assortment of Contemporary Southern dishes that would win anyone over.
Their menu changes seasonally, so you can always expect the freshest of the fresh here.
Seared scallops, sausage linguini, and blue crab gnocchi are just a few of the creative dishes you’ll find at CellarDoor.
For an appetizer, you can’t go wrong with their Brussel sprouts or fried oysters. Yum!
Of course, you’ll still see some familiar tried and true staples on the menu.
Their classic burger and fries is always a home run.
And don't forget to check out their carefully crafted cocktail menu.
You might just find your new favorite beverage!
