Broussard's

Built in 1834, Broussard's was once known as the Borello Mansion. In 1920, Joseph Broussard and his wife Rosalie Borello opened the lower level of this mansion to the public as a small restaurant. The subtle elegance and the imperial decor are reminiscent of Napoleonic days gone by. Broussard's Parisian culinary training, coupled with his demand for perfection, made this a five-star restaurant. Choose from such Creole classics as Pompano Evelyn or baked filet of redfish.
