Came here after staff couldn't accommodate one more person on our reservation at Jackson 20 and were pleasantly surprised! Not too busy for brunch and food was great.

The ambiance will remind you of sitting in one of the many restaurants found in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The decorations, furniture, multi-level seating and of course the food borrow heavily from creole fair. We ate on a weeknight and were seating within 5' of the only other two parties in the restaurant, as opposed to giving us... More

Two Nineteen has a new menu, an innovative chef and a spiffy new website. They are proud of their revamped array of offerings. All brunch items come with a complimentary champagne drink-a nice welcome touch. We have dined at all the King Street eateries over the years, except Two Nineteen. On a tip from a local about the new chef,... More

Live music, good bands, good people. Cigar Bar, prices range, good selection. Restaurant is separate, food is good. Located on main street, surrounding is good for walking (weather permitting).

We sat on leather couches, watched tv & had a great time with family & friends. The prices are reasonable & you can smoke cigarettes as well. We had appetizers, drinks... More

Once entering the restaurant you immediately get the smell emanating from the cigar bar so we chose to sit outside on their patio. The dinner menu had limited options so we chose items that we would not have normally eaten since we were already there. The waitress was friendly but was in no hurry to give me the check when...

Got hungry while shopping and this restaurant looked as good as any. Turned out to be New Orleans cuisine (my wife's home town) with a waiter from NOLA that knew some of the people we knew. So we had some shrimp and grits and some jambalaya along with some friendly conversations and jokes about back home.

Description
Housed in a historic 19th century townhouse blocks from the waterfront, 219 has for 40 years been a beacon for the most authentic gourmet creole experience possible outside of greater New Orleans. Executive Chef Marcus Olson has taken things one step further and introduced a truly unique gourmet butcher experience--USDA Prime steaks dry-aged 21 days in house and cut to order to your exact specifications. Your meal is complemented by a 750+ bottle wine list and a massive whiskey selection. We offer private dining rooms in addition to our elegant main floor, and offer tasting menus custom-tailored to your preferences. After your meal, you can unwind in our spacious second story lounge and be entertained by world class blues music most nights of the week. Whether your taste runs towards alligator and etouffee, or to succulent aged steaks, we invite you to rediscover your favorite Old Town institution.
