According to Only In Your State:

Antoine’s Restaurant has a 176 year-old legacy and it’s right here in the Big Easy. Still owned and operated by fifth generation relatives of the original founder, Antoine’s continues to serve up world class French-Creole cuisine combined with unparalleled customer service. Come and see what makes this place a Louisiana landmark.

Can you imagine sitting in a place that has served hot meals since before the Civil War? It has survived the Depression, prohibition, and countless hurricanes. Antoine's is also the originator of Oysters Rockefeller, a dish that has been copied time and time again, but you can still have the original inside these historic walls.

Here's to another 175 years, Antoine's!
