The restaurant opened in 2001, but the building dates back to the early 1700s. It was once the home of Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan who spent years transforming it into his dream home. Sadly, he lost the house in a poker game and rather than leave his dream house, he took his own life in one of the rooms. The staff has had many strange experiences in the building, and many believe that the ghost of Mr. Jourdan still roams the building. Muriel’s always keeps a table set for Mr. Jourdan, and you can reserve the table and possibly have a paranormal experience of your own.
