New Orlean's oldest restaurant, Antoine's, will celebrate 175 years of continuous operation with a visit to New York's Delmonico's from March 30th- April 4th.
Executive Chef Michael Regua of Antoine's and Exectuive Chef Billy Oliva of Delmonico's will blend Antoine's signature French Creole menu with Delmonico's steakhouse classics for a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Some of the Big Easy dishes that will be making their way to the Big Appel are: Crevettes Remoulade and Potage Alligator au Sherry. The seafood dishes will complement Delmonico's famous steaks for a unique surf and turf style menu.
Antoine Alciatore founded the world-renowned restuarant in 1840 after immigrating to America from France. The restaurant, perhaps best known as the birthplace of Oysters Rockefeller, has survived many challenges, including: the Civil War, Prohibition, the Great Depression, both World Wars, and Hurricane Katrina.
Antoine's will hold its own New Orleans based festivities this coming October (3-5), which will include a block party, Alciatore family reunion, and a Red Cross fundraiser. Antoine's will also feature Delmonico's menu items during that week.
Delmonico's, founded in 1837, is America's oldest fine-dining restaurant and is the birthplace of Egg's Benedict.
