    The menu is classic New Orleans Creole (read: tourist-oriented) but dammit if that’s not some of the best shrimp remoulade in town. [Eater 38 Member]

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. The muffuletta, great. The Pimm's Cup, good. But, the Sazerac. Boy. What a Sazerac. Read more

    On a hot New Orleans afternoon, this is a cool, dark place to have a Pimm's Cup.

    Outstanding muffaletta, the olive salad is homemade and amazing. Def recommend the bruschetta as well -- good large appetizer.

    We love the Pimm’s Cups at the Napoleon House—a traditionally British cocktail served in an Italian-owned, French Quarter restaurant.

  • Daniel E.

    Good God. Try the Muffaletta. It's the most amazing Italian Sandwich I've ever had. The stuff I dream about when I want to be eating. It's that good.

    Check out the Red Beans, Rice and Smoked Sausage; a New Orleans Tradition and Great Value! It goes well with a Pimm's Cup.

    We love the warm muffulettas!

  • Rebecca C.

    Ask for a Pimm's Cup, be polite, and enjoy one of the best cocktails in New Orleans. Ask for a Pimm's Rose or any other misguided, stupid or confused ordering you might as well go back to Bourbon St.

    I've read a lot of debate about whether a muffaletta should be served cold (a la Central Grocery) or hot, as they do it here. Order one for yourself to make your own decision.

    Pimms on the patio of course! But the food is delicious too, po' boy with a portion of jambalaya = perfect!

    The organic sandwich was surprisingly good. Service us intentionally slow so make you you have plenty of time.

    Steeped in a colonial architecture amber, this French Quarter landmark was once offered to Napoleon as a place of refuge in 1821 by Mayor Nicholas Girod. Best known for a Pimm's Cup, try a Sazerac. Read more

    Known for their warm Muffuletta sandwiches. Be sure to only get a quarter so you have room for red beans and rice. The olive salad has a bit too much celery in it but the sandwich was still great. Read more
