No Worries at The Pontchartrain: Luxury Living on the Avenue

Courtesy The Pontchartrain, New Orleans LIVING WELL Magazine 

In the city that care forgot, our residents don’t eat to live, they live to eat.

Here at The Pontchartrain, our venerable Caribbean Room has been world famous for providing excellent creole cuisine to presidents, movie stars and dignitaries with discriminating palates.

Starting with only the freshest ingredients in preparation, our chefs bring back some of the well-known delicacies that made the Caribbean Room famous. Menu items such as Crab Cakes Oscar, Pasta Di Giorno, and Crabmeat Remick, will be combined with old favorites like Shrimp Remoulade, Corn and Crab Bisque Soup, and Crawfish Etouffee.

The quality of the food is only surpassed by the elegance of the Caribbean Room, which has been painstakingly returned to its historic luxury. Our signature dessert, Mile High Pie has returned to round out that truly special meal. Residents can serve on our fine dining committee to provide constant input to our kitchen.

To make an appointment for viewing any day of the week, please call The Pontchartrain at 504-524-0581.
